Does your IT Strategy inform your Business Strategy?
The days of formulating IT strategy in a silo are over. Today, IT Leaders must be business savvy and have a seat at the executive table to ensure that IT capabilities and technology trends inform business strategy. Strategic thinking IT leaders must not only address traditional operational aspects of IT, but develop technology strategy & roadmaps that are aligned with enterprise priorities and create business value.
Technology is increasingly becoming the catalyst for disruptive change within business ecosystems.
"Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don't think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other."
But, technology alone is not a sound strategy for business transformation. IT Strategy still needs to address People, Process and Technology and incorporate sound IT standards, governance, quality and incident management processes. Today’s IT strategy must also embrace the rapid pace of innovation, the need for an outstanding customer experience, instant scalability, interoperability, amorphous data sources (IoT) and heighted security risks. All of which must be measured and monitored.
