The relationship between IT and business must become more service-driven, with IT in the role of the preferred supplier and business as the consumer. As the supplier, IT is responsible for providing needed services when they are needed. The following core IT disciplines apply to this relationship:

*IT economics is focused on increasing efficiency and reducing IT costs, and optimizing CapEx and OpEx expenditures for the IT organization, while maintaining the expected quality of service.
