"Strategic information systems planning provides a framework for identifying business requirements and developing an approach to using technology for cost effectively supporting them."

The information technology industry continues to undergo rapid changes in products and strategic direction.  These changes represent both challenges and opportunities for organizations.  TechCon Management Consulting has a proven track record in working with organizations to both guide the development of and do a comprehensive evaluation of the information technology strategic business plan.
 
Approach
 
Our information systems planning approach focuses on identifying and documenting management and end-user expectations of information technology systems to meet business needs.  We follow a formalized methodology that includes the following steps:
  • Interview management and information system users
  • Review organization business plan and workflow documentation if available
  • Review business functions supported by IS and evaluate the ability to meet current and projected business needs with existing technology
  • Identify business requirements and critical success factors
  • Review current systems environment
  • Develop information systems hardware, software, network and personnel profiles

  • Recommend hardware, software, network and staffing strategies
  • Develop a detailed strategic plan

The strategic information systems plan that results from this approach includes a formalized document specifying detailed findings and recommendations.  This strategic plan clearly describes objectives and can be used as a basis for budgeting and determining the effectiveness of ongoing information systems and technologies that are in use or will be implemented.

Benefits

Benefits that derive from this structured approach include:

  • An independent assessment of organization goals and current information system capabilities
  • A plan customized to the needs of your organization
  • A step-by-step action plan

TechCon Management Consulting professionals have hands-on strategic planning experience and have completed assignments for corporations, government agencies, non-profit organizations and educational institutions.
