Business Technology Alignment

As IT evolves from rigid technology deployment into flexible service oriented offerings, the rigour involved in designing how such services are designed, implemented and experienced is becoming critical. It is essential that technology investment decisions are carefully aligned with existing and planned IT strategies to ensure successful implementation.

Insights gained from the measurement study, opens doors for fact-based and pro-active conversations with the business, potentially leading to improved business technology alignment, in addition to cost and performance improvements. Well managed initiatives help improve IT demand and capacity planning, application portfolio planning, technology selection, and so on.

In addition to the traditional delivery models of in-house, outsourcing or hybrid sourcing, often considerations of shared services, outsourcing, right-shoring and Cloud delivery are on the table. The Cloud delivery models cover several alternatives such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Hybrids models. Ultimately the final solution must take consideration of options available, in line with the IT Strategy and its demands.
