Strategic IT Management

The continuing penetration of information technologies into all areas of daily life requires of companies and organizations a targeted IT strategy and the effective control of their IT. In addition, IT organization and IT processes must be optimally aligned to the needs of the company (IT business alignment). The company must be masters of its enterprise architecture, the interplay between IT (data, applications, IT infrastructure as well as IT integration) and business processes.

The IT strategy points the way for the long-term IT development. A targeted IT strategy is therefore critical for an organization.

IT business alignment is the optimal adaptation of IT to the requirements of the organization and it business activities. Decisive in this are an appropriate IT organisation, effective IT governance as well as controls on performance and costs.

With IT portfolio management, value must be placed on the control of the IT project portfolio and the choice of suitable IT services. In addition, intelligent IT sourcing is required.

IT process management requires the effective and efficient handling of IT processes amongst other things modelled on COBIT and ITIL (IT service management) and the shaping of the innovative strength of the IT function.

Good IT architecture management, meaning the targeted choice of the right IT building blocks (data, applications, integration and infrastructure components) and their interplay amongst each other and with business processes is the secret of successful IT.

IT Domains

With both the creation and the implementation of an IT strategy we utilize our IT domain model to ensure that every IT relevant field is optimally considered.

Alongside this, the model is used in the investigation of IT performance (IT health check) or when coaching those responsible for IT.
