    6. 6. Mission First: IT Alignment <ul><li>the coordination of an IT strategy with the goals, strategies, and processes used to meet an organization’s mission. </li></ul>
    7. 7. IT Alignment: The Stages <ul><ul><ul><li>Chaotic . Back-up software and automated methods to monitor the network and servers are used. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reactive . A simple trouble-ticket system, basic IT inventory, desktop software distribution, and real-time network monitoring are provided. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Proactive . A service or help desk for problem management is implemented, along with the beginning of a change-management system; software usage analysis; and server capacity, application availability, and response time measurement systems. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    8. 8. IT Alignment: The Stages <ul><ul><ul><li>Service . A change-management database, capacity-planning tools, and a what-if analysis—based on the measurement systems implemented in the Proactive stage—are employed. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Value . IT portfolio management (systemic method to manage total infrastructure) is realized; business service management uses revenue impact analysis (tying IT services directly to changes in revenue); and business metrics are supplied via IT systems, IT governance, and legal discovery. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    9. 9. Stages of Mission Alignment Technology assets are seen as investments rather than expenses, with all elements tied to mission objectives. Technology assets are seen as a mix of investments and expenses, with some elements tied to mission objectives. Some technology is tied with mission, but-day to day issues often overshadow these goals. Information systems exist, but are only used for routine business processes and automating tasks. Information systems, if any, are used only for routine business processes. How closely is technology tied to mission? Value Service Proactive Reactive Chaotic
