Business IT Alignment
It’s all about bridging the gaps so you can more effectively run your enterprise.
A recent survey found that 42 percent of executive responses received, representing more than 500 U.S. Fortune 1000 companies, stated that their business and IT strategies were not aligned.
The importance of alignment between business and IT strategy is increasing, and as business environments become more complex and uncertain, IT systems have a growing need to fill the new or existing gaps.
Most failed IT alignment plans are a result of unclear business value the organization is hoping 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 solution’s costs, in this example, often offset the gains.
