Gartner Research’s bimodal IT framework recognizes that traditional development practices are no longer sufficient for organizations with growing enterprise application demand. Instead, the bimodal IT strategy calls for two parallel tracks that support rapid application development for digital innovation priorities, alongside existing application maintenance and operational stabilization projects.
Digital innovation projects look significantly different from traditional application development projects. As such, a bimodal IT strategy helps categorize applications based on their value to the business, thus determining the right resources (or mode) for development and fast-tracking strategic business innovation projects.
By separating into two modes, IT teams can ensure that they have the right people, process, and technology to support business initiatives without impacting long-term maintenance projects.
