IT Strategy and Architecture

The role of Strategy and Architecture functions varies between organisations and is usually based on specific business priorities coupled with the current level of maturity. Some businesses operate a ‘project-centric’ architecture function but strive to operate a fully integrated ‘business-centric’ capability that spans and governs the enterprise as a whole. Enterprise architecture and strategy practices have evolved in recent years and have quickly become the epicentre of business change and sustainable growth.

Overview

Most organisations have a a clear business strategy that sets the company's direction and defines its objectives. A robust and practical technology strategy underpins and aligns IT with this overarching business strategy, and is extremely important in making sure the organisation works towards the most profitable and sustainable outcomes.

Every technology decision made today will forge the path of your business now and for the future. Are you confident that those decisions are right ones and can be implemented successfully with the outcomes you want?

Challenges

Business and technology leaders are presented with a collection of challenges when trying to define a practical, enterprise-wide technology strategy and target operating model. These challenges are not always easy to identify and can sometimes require significant effort to overcome.

These common challenges may include:

  • Aligning a technology strategy to business objectives and priorities, while ensuring value is delivered across the organisation.
  • Building a robust IT operating model that meets both the immediate and future demands of the business.
  • Measuring performance and maintaining control of business services, infrastructure and applications.
  • Quickly responding to new opportunities or threats without having to make extensive environmental, operational and technical change.
  • Driving operational efficiency by managing ongoing cost and reducing technical debt.
  • Protecting digital assets and securely handling information while reducing operational risk and protecting against increasing cyber security threats.
  • Increased managerial pressure to transition from traditional delivery models to emerging technologies such as Cloud Computing, IoT and data-centric services.
