Before we get started, let’s first talk about what an IT strategy is.
Simply put, an IT strategy is a document that outlines how technology is expected to support your business over a given time. This usually ranges anywhere from a year to five years. Since its main purpose is to help your company achieve its goals, it’s not uncommon for the strategy to be a part of an overall business plan.
An IT strategy must be aligned with the goals of your business, otherwise you may not be able to take advantage of the benefits it has to offer. In order to maximize the benefits of an IT strategy, every department in the company should be involved.
