This kind of transparency helps us build applications and implement infrastructure to deliver business results, and it gives us a new level of agility to enable the business.
We have adopted cloud computing, which would have been difficult without transparency. We have also increased our speed of delivery—deployment cycles that once took 9-12 months now take six—because we no longer have two separate assessments for applications and infrastructure. We deploy IT resources based on business capability rather than applications; IT managers are aligned with business areas such as distribution management rather than applications. None of our strategic projects have failed in the past year. From a governance perspective, we're doing the basics right in terms of requirements management, design and architecture planning.
