Introduction to ICT Strategic Planning


The Client has developed a corporate strategy to lead organizations activities through 2016. To support the corporate strategy implementation, an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Strategic Plan is required to define the way the organization intends to employ its ICT assets to support its current and future needs. The ICT Strategic Plan will be the guiding technology framework that the organization will use to realize value from its ICT assets and initiatives, in alignment to achieve the greater business objectives set out in the corporate Strategy.
