Technology is an integral part of business. Development or adoption of new technology can lead to competitive advantage. From a strategic perspective, technology should be seen as the enabler of the business model to create and deliver value to customers. It is the means rather than the end goal. With this in mind, companies should develop a formal Technology Strategy to support their business objectives. This presentation puts forward a simple framework called the Technology Strategy Canvas.
