Frequently Asked Questions.

  • What should an IT strategy include?

    An effective IT strategy should reflect a commitment to non-negotiable principles, such as exclusively utilising open-source software, while also outlining ambitious yet flexible goals. It ought to provide a prioritised catalogue of initiatives that balance offensive and defensive IT measures alongside immediate and strategic responses, all evaluated through a lens of market realities, including competitor movements and regulatory shifts. Additionally, it must consider the long-term role of technology in seizing opportunities and mitigating threats, culminating in a clearly defined budget. Importantly, an IT strategy is not static; it requires regular reviews and updates to adapt to changing market landscapes, technological evolution, and shifts in business objectives.

  • How do you develop an IT strategy?

    Developing an IT strategy involves a systematic approach that starts with understanding the core principles and business objectives that guide your organisation. This understanding forms the basis for setting specific IT goals aligned with your company’s strategic direction. A thorough assessment of the current IT landscape, including infrastructure, applications, and resources, is necessary to identify gaps and opportunities for improvement. Prioritisation of initiatives is critical, distinguishing between those that deliver immediate benefits and those that are strategically important in the longer term. This process involves assessing potential threats and external factors such as market trends, competitor strategies, and regulatory requirements to ensure the strategy is resilient and adaptable. The inclusion of a financial framework is essential, outlining the investment needed for implementation. A successful IT strategy is flexible, with regular reviews to adjust to new information, technologies, and changing business goals, ensuring it remains relevant and effective.

  • What is the role of IT strategy in business?

    The role of IT strategy in business is multifaceted, serving as a bridge between an organisation’s overarching objectives and the practical application of technology to meet these aims. It ensures that all technological initiatives are in harmony with the business’s goals, be they growth, efficiency, or innovation. A well-crafted IT strategy provides a roadmap for technology investment, guides the digital transformation journey, and helps mitigate risks associated with IT investments. It ensures that resources are allocated efficiently, avoiding wasteful spending on disparate or redundant technologies. Additionally, it enables companies to respond agilely to market changes and competitive pressures by prioritising IT projects that deliver the greatest value. In essence, IT strategy integrates the potential of technology with business strategy, ensuring that IT functions not as a standalone entity but as an integral, value-adding component of the business.
