If you are interested in how one of the world's largest manufacturers tackles IT management, this series of articles about Ford is worth a read.
The articles cover how Ford moved to a centralised federated IT department, tying it to its 'One Ford' initiative. It also viewed IT as an asset, developed a comprehensive collaboration strategy, and focused on integration to reduce maintenance.
It points out that because Ford must focus on new products and enhancing sales, maintaining any infrastructure that doesn't deliver on those goals is a waste of time.
