What an IT Strategy should be
Your company's IT Strategy should outline the scope, objectives, benefits and should
have a direct relationship to your business strategy. The company IT strategy should
also describe the methodologies used, staffing plans, budget and provide a summary
of your project portfolio.
Your company plans are heavily influenced by existing applications and project portfolio
as well as the methods and IT architecture you currently use.
SWOT analysis is key
The strengths and weaknesses of your company's IT team are significant inputs to
strategy development. New technologies and processes offer opportunities to better
support business plans as well as cost reductions. Consider also how those same technologies
are used by competitors.
IT governance. The roles and responsibilities you put in place now will be significant
in hard times and in growth periods ahead.
