Strategy to build an extensible platform for future success.
Things have changed. Technology is no longer seen as a mere support function whose purpose is to make the ‘money-makers' lives a little easier.
Companies and organisations are increasingly looking to technology to address the operational challenges they are faced with and achieve that sort of competitive advantages that allow them to maximise their business success and ensure longevity in their marketplace. Such a significant change in mindset has occurred as a result of greater technological familiarity outside of the traditional IT function where what were traditionally the ‘non technical’ areas of business are now more tech savvy. While this has made the job of today’s CIO in some respects easier it has also bought about a new set of challenges and an evolution in the way that technology and traditional business have become more integrated.
As a CIO or head of technology your role has advanced beyond the traditional mandate of maintaining a stable technology platform that supports core business operations. You are now expected to add significant value to your organisation by not only offering technological solutions to business problems but by building a technology infrastructure that is both aligned with the goals of your business and agile enough to adapt to changing market dynamics quickly. All of which must be achieved in an economical manner which reduces operational costs rather than adding to them. In an environment where great emphasis in being placed on cost reduction CIO’s are now being asked to do a great deal more with less.
Everyday new technologies emerge which not only change the way that we do business but which increase the technological dependence of enterprises. Technology has become such an important part of the way that organisations now function making an effective IT strategy integral to the success of any enterprise or organisation regardless of the industry they operate in. Having the technological capabilities to compete and be a market leader starts with formulating a comprehensive IT strategy that not only covers your organisations immediate needs but which also includes a forward view of how technology will evolve with the rest of your business.
