Why a Corporate Strategy for IT – What’s in it for You?

Developments in IT and the world economy have changed the paradigm for corporate IT people and the strategies they lead. Consumers and business managers are increasingly confident at exploiting technology in ways that they value. Meanwhile, executives remain determined to constrain IT spending, not always certain of what they get in return. The economic climate makes it even more important to understand the links between value creation and IT costs.
The Corporate Strategy for IT harnesses the energy of Business-led strategies for exploiting IT, to create maximum total value. It also makes transparent the linkages between Business decisions and IT costs - often with some very surprising results.
