In the current highly competitive and dynamic business environment, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are more than ever a critical enabler for an organisation’s success, since it constitutes a source of competitive advantage and an important tool in the effort to automate and streamline business operations. ICT is an extremely useful means to serve an organisation’s needs along the following dimensions:
- Commercial: It helps to proactively identify and satisfy customers’ needs and improve market positioning of a company;
- Financial: It assists an organisation to identify and constrain its critical cost components, thus improving financial efficiency;
- Operational: It improves operational effectiveness by automating and streamlining business processes while supporting continuous improvement by providing critical information concerning the performance of business operations throughout the organisation;
- Management & Control: It helps to effectively plan and control business operations, including IT management processes, thus enabling streamlining of work flows and management of all types of risks.
This important success factor is often in a suboptimal state: IT applications and systems are often incompatible with user needs and requirements, fragmented and mutually inconsistent, thus contributing to an overall misalignment of strategic goals and actual operations. It is therefore of paramount importance to assist an organisation in creating, implementing and maintaining an integrated and consistent ICT strategy plan in order to unleash its hidden dynamics.
