We all know how fundamental technology is to business growth and success, but do you simply implement technologies that work for the time being?
Do you go above and beyond – implementing technologies, processes, and procedures that are well thought out and aligned with your business goals and objectives?
Strategic technology planning is important because it allows you to outline measureable goals and maintain a sense of direction to move your company forward. Here are 3 vital ways your IT company should be helping you with strategic technology planning to promote success:
- Holding business reviews on a quarterly basis – without exception
For most businesses, becoming more agile and innovative is key to increasing value for those they serve. This is why regular business reviews, held on a quarterly basis, is vital to ensuring technology is being used efficiently and any solutions in place are working as they should. These business reviews should go over what’s working, what’s not working, and whether or not there’s been progress.
- Creating a documented and well thought out technology roadmap
A technology roadmap is a framework created to outline specific goals and objectives, as well as the technology solutions expected to help meet those goals and objectives. This roadmap needs to be created and reviewed to monitor success and prioritize/budget for what needs to be done to ensure goals and objectives are being met without going over budget.
- Providing guidance when it comes to technology investments
There’s no way around it: technology can be expensive, and as part of strategic technology planning, guidance is vital when it comes to technology investments, in order to ensure you’re choosing the right solutions for your unique needs, challenges, goals, and objectives. You never want cookie-cutter offerings or the latest and greatest technologies simply because they’re available – you want what’s going to work best for YOUR unique technology roadmap.
