IT Business Planning

IT Business Planning

Organisations both large and small need a coherent IT strategy; including a plan to implement important projects that may require significant and or additional time to complete. These projects should be identified, prioritised and budgeted so the business has a clear understanding of what is required in the coming years.

Awareness can assist in developing and formulating the business’s IT direction over a planned period for example a three-year budgeted roadmap. This planning process allows the business to create realistic, achievable and costed IT projects.

Specifically, we can help you to:

  • ‘plan for known’ upgrades
  • ‘be prepared for unknown’ but required IT system improvements and additions
  • ‘react to unknown’ system requirements resulting from audits, security and new technology.

A three-year strategy should capture your business’s objectives, accommodate change and react to unknown requirements; plans should be reviewed annually.

An example business plan could include:
