The importance of an IT strategy

Every organisation understands the importance of IT.

Maintaining any infrastructure is expensive and replacing and updating even more so.

But without the right infrastructure, systems, and applications in your business, you may not achieve the objectives you’ve defined.

This is a specialist area.

All stakeholders need to be consulted.

Your IT strategy needs to give a clear direction for your organisation’s future technology investments and evolution.

Things to consider when developing an IT strategy

To develop the correct IT strategy for your organisation, a comprehensive investigation is undertaken in conjunction with input from each group of stakeholders.

This includes:

Assessment and analysis of your current IT elements. The strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats

Business objectives to ensure your IT initiatives will assist you in reaching your goals.

A technology landscape analysis and whether it is futureproofed to enable your business objectives.

Once all the information is gathered, priorities are set out.

The Roadmap

The development of a roadmap, to outline the sequence and timeline for implementation, will include in phases – each taking a number of months.

The roadmap will also detail the resource planning for the critical resources required – including budget, personnel, and technology.

Potential risks and challenges will be assessed, and mitigation plans developed to address them.

Governance and Monitoring

To ensure the implementation and progress of the IT strategy remains aligned with the organisation’s needs, it is essential to establish a governance structure.

Communication and Documentation

The development of a roadmap, to outline the sequence and timeline for implementation, will include in phases – each taking a number of months.

The roadmap will also detail the resource planning for the critical resources required – including budget, personnel, and technology.

Potential risks and challenges will be assessed, and mitigation plans developed to address them.

Review and Iteration​

No strategy in business should be static and an IT strategy is no different.  Regular reviews and iterations are necessary for changing trading conditions, and to take advantage of emerging technologies and evolving business trends.
