We believe a pragmatic approach to creating and managing an IT Strategy can provide significant benefits
An IT Strategy approach that focuses on the key issues facing organizations today and answers the questions:
What IT investments should I make that will provide me with the best business returns for the money spend? What IT capabilities do I need to be successful in the connected economy? How should I manage my IT investments so that I realize the the full value of those investments and reduce the risks of failure?

The approach should recognize that:


Good IT planning is more than paying salaries and depreciating hardware -- Its about creating new assets in the form of intellectual capital and strategic IT capabilities Good IT planning is more a matter of allocating resources to the right investments than containing costs

Why this framework works


Planning is not an event, not a document, but a continuous process
The strategy must be renewable as the business evolves The strategy must be changeable to support changes in technology

The IT Strategy must be explicitly integrated with the business direction


Every investment in IT must provide value to the enterprise Value is derived from the use of technology, not technology itself

The IT Strategy must drive the implementation of systems and designs of architectures The architectures must be linked to the IT Strategy so that implementation can be done in a consistent and cost-effective way

Strategy is not just about the new, but what to do with the existing environment
