Many businesses often measure IT performance with a partial or biased point of view, often relying on traditional key performance indicators to assess a limited range of performance areas. This often gives way to data that is skewed asymmetrically, at best, or saturated inaccurate information and bias, at the worst. This inevitably causes executives to make bad strategic decisions with regard to the overall strategy of information technology, often excessively relying on technology to solve organizational problems or investing too heavily in ill-conceived outcomes.
