  • 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 -- It’s 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
      • Must address the current systems portfolio
