Whilst IT organisations strive to provide the best integrated solutions to optimize the efficiency of their business ‘customers’, very often the IT team itself is less well served by integrated solutions. It is common for IT teams to use a mixed bag of solutions, frequently based on spreadsheets in an attempt to achieve the independent objectives of each team within IT. Now you can keep everything in one place with one single solution – Qualify Enterprise.
