It's all about bridging the gaps, so you can more effectively run your enterprise.
A recent survey found that 42% of executive responses received, representing over 500 US Fortune 1000 companies, stated that their business and IT strategies were not aligned. The importance of alignment between business and IT strategy is increasing. Business environments become more complex and uncertain, and IT systems have a growing need to fill the newly created or existing gaps.
Most failed IT alignment plans are a result of unclear business value, or strategic or tactical business benefit the organization is planning to achieve. Quite simply, the IT alignment plan needs to have a business metric not an IT metric of delivery of application. An example is the belief that just implementing software solutions will enhance revenue through efficiency gains or new customer sources. Unfortunately, the software solutions costs often offset the gains.
