Ray Blackman, director of consulting and professional services at Attenda.net, pointed out that around 80 per cent of these initiatives fail to deliver the benefits expected by the sponsors during transformational change.
He added that research has previously proved that close to the same percentage of IT estate management schemes will not work and not deliver the expected return of investment, due to an employer's failure to implement them around a workplace correctly.
However, Mr Blackman was keen to stress: "In a nutshell, what I'm saying is if you sit on top of an IT estate and try and change it, business expectation is that you're going to reduce costs, mitigate risks or improve customer service."
The expert also recommended that business managers top up their knowledge on IT estate management strategies before they begin altering them in a company.
Otherwise, "you're changing parts of the jigsaw puzzle without understanding how all the parts fit together," Mr Blackman went on to explain.
