IT strategy

Businesses change over time, so your IT strategy should evolve with you. Many companies find that their IT infrastructure cannot cope with the new demands placed on it as they grow.

IT solutions put in place in the early days can struggle to keep pace — and growth through acquisition can often result in disparate systems and services not working in harmony.

Sometimes, you need to take a step back and assess whether the solutions and services you have are still fit for purpose in your new business landscape — or you just need a different perspective. Whether you have an IT department that needs a helping hand or you’re without any IT resource to guide you, get in touch with us.

So what’s the challenge?

  • As the Business leader, director, senior manager, Finance Director, it’s your job to align your IT with the business strategy and transform business processes.
  • It is challenging to align IT with business goals, leaving many managers feeling unsupported by their IT department.
  • Your typical in-house IT team lacks the skills (and time) to develop a full-proof strategic plan for IT.

Frequently asked questions

FAQ: IT strategy roadmap

An IT Strategy roadmap is a high-level program that defines how technology can be aligned to meet your specific business requirements. Often, it will include a series of change projects to modernise and enhance capability and security.

An IT Strategy roadmap, developed in partnership with you, is a bespoke program to get your IT capability to a place where you can benefit from:

  • Improved flexibility — work from anywhere with the same tools and capability
  • Improved user experience — less complexity, more productivity and consistency
  • Better security — reduce risk from cyber attacks and data loss
  • Improved ROI and value from your IT spend.

An IT Strategy roadmap from Optimising IT will consist of a high-level presentation outlining the findings and recommendations from an initial review, as well as details on what the recommendations are and the benefits they will deliver.

This varies depending on the size and complexity of your organisation. The most important aspect of any roadmap is the first step: understanding your organisation and goals. Once an agreed understanding is established, we can create the IT Strategy roadmap to help you reach your goals.
