For large and complex organizations, IT Infrastructure and Operations (I&O) is mission critical to support business objectives and deliver value.
An effective IT Strategy must be geared towards execution; a technology roadmap that looks good on paper but cannot be implemented is worthless. Business goals and technology options will change, and your IT Strategy needs to be flexible so that it can be updated as changes occur. For IT leaders who may be considering seeking out external strategic support for I&O challenges, key considerations include:
- The pace of organizational growth rendering the current IT strategy insufficient and causing misalignment of IT initiatives
- Lack of adequate control over the IT budget, leading to other parts of the organization creating services and applications that IT governance must be adjusted to then manage
- Rapid technological change making it impossible to stay ahead enough in terms of knowledge of the state of the art in hardware and software. As a result, it becomes difficult to evaluate options from vendors against needed requirements when planning to implement a solution per your technology roadmap
- Outdated technology, or disparate, stitched-together best-of-breed systems, creating concerns around reliability of the business’ platform, and the risk of outages
