Information technology (IT) has become a vital part of almost every business – from multi-national enterprises to small businesses. And today, it is not enough to create an IT strategy; it is essential to derive IT strategy from enterprise strategy and position IT as a key enabler in the business value chain.
Creating and managing a plan that outlines how technology and IT capabilities should be used to meet IT and business goals is no longer an option, but a necessity – especially in an era where some disruptions and innovations can actually change business value chains, disrupt business models, and/or transform how businesses operate.
This course will equip participants with the necessary knowledge to manage IT strategically by understanding and analysing today’s challenges, providing a holistic approach for managing IT as a business, and defining IT strategic management components.
The course will also focus on strategic frameworks, governance, service management and enterprise architecture (EA) concepts and how they can be utilised to define excellence metrics, drive value, optimise results and reduce costs in managing IT holistically.
