NEWS: Study Shows IT Fuels Business Growth

Recent research on the impact of IT on business by consulting firm Keystone Strategy, Inc., under the direction of Professor Marco Iansiti of Harvard Business School and with sponsorship by Microsoft supports the premise that information technology fuels business growth.
The Keystone report determined that well-optimized IT directly affects business performance: 

Companies in the top 25 percent of IT capability grew revenue 6.8% faster per year than their peers in the bottom 25 percent of IT capability between 2002 and 2005.

These findings support Microsoft’s People-Ready Business vision which focuses on empowering people in an organization with the software and tools they need to become a vital strategic asset in the organization’s success.
