(By Jim Mayne - Business/Technology Officer, Deerwood Technologies)
It's that time of year - as leaders of businesses, organizations and departments - when many of us look ahead to set goals, priorities and plans for the future. Planning processses take many shapes and forms, but one way or another we attempt to assess our current state and place in the environment, determine our intended direction and velocity, and finally develop strategies and tactics for getting there - along with milestone and goals to hit along the way.
All organizations small and large are increasingly dependent on information technology. IT systems are critical to manage production, sales, the customer experience, and back-office administration. IT capabilities must be aligned to meet these needs.
Concurrently, the same organizations who are focused on optimizing IT benefits for their business are also concerned about IT's lifecycle costs. It is imperative that IT spending is controlled and ensure that IT investments are enabling the right capabilities - those taht make a difference for their business.
A Technology Roadmap will help achieve both goals. It helps to see through the fog to the road ahead - a road where IT is aligned to meet the needs of your business.
