IT Strategy & Transformation Practice
Helping organizations tap into the power of information technology
With renewed focus on growth, market share and profitability in the global marketplace, organizations are looking more and more to information technology (IT) as a source of competitive advantage and a driver of new business models. Organizations are inclined, more now than ever, to explore and embrace new technology trends as they seek out new revenue opportunities and hone operating efficiencies. With these heightened expectations on IT services and capabilities, senior IT leadership must assume the added role of innovator - leveraging emerging technologies, while ensuring the day-to-day operations to deliver sustained, long term business value.
IT Strategy & Transformation Framework
Strategy Done Right
The development of an impactful IT strategy starts with the business strategy and the processes that enable and support that business strategy which, in turn, drive the strategic IT agenda. This provides for a clear linkage back to business priorities and positions the IT function as a business enabler as opposed to an inhibitor.
Through our IT Strategy & Transformation Framework, a target state of business and IT capabilities are defined and translated into a strategic roadmap. The roadmap lays out an integrated program of initiatives to close any existing capability gaps and/or to address existing operational pain points for driving new business growth. Our framework ensures tight alignment of these initiatives with overall business objectives and strategies that drive the need for change and capability improvements and, as a result, enables executives to make IT investment decisions that generate value and return on investment. IT strategy development is also not a one-time event, but rather an iterative process that incorporates the various learning from ongoing plan execution. A review and refresh of an IT strategy periodically will ensure continued alignment to changing business needs and priorities.
