What is business technology? or BT?

Business technology (BT) is not just a new name for IT. BT is not simply a more accurate label for "technology meant for business use."

Forrester Research introduced the term and according to them, business technology (BT) is "Pervasive technology use that boosts business results."
BT is about keeping business results at front and center while managing and executing tech projects.
Among the early users of the new label are CIO Magazine and McKinsey & Company. Thanks to BT pioneers Forrester Research and BTM Corp — they have devised frameworks at strategic level (aimed at the CIO).
Many companies have already adopted BT in name, but not yet in practice. This blog is primarily focused on the practice of BT.
