Before learning about digital era it is important to understand the concept if two-speed IT and why was it not suitable for the rise of industrialization. Although two-speed IT once was a concept that any IT department should include in strategic planning to allow the projects to implement quickly without being distracted by balances and checks to maintain critical business IT operations, there were many downsides to it. It has been a decade, CIOs and IT leaders have experimented on two-speed IT in order to drive business agility. The result showed the number of downside overlapping the advantages.

The digital world was expected to bring new changes to the IT sector by making up a connection with traditional IT. the approach was sensed as a compromise that can delay the progress of the companies.
