What is a CEO’s Technology Strategy Framework?

CEO’s Technology Strategy Framework gives a CEO and their senior leadership team a bird’s-eye view of their current technology capabilities and investments and how they are related to different aspects of their business. The Technology Strategy Framework helps you have a balanced approach to your technology requirements to make sure that technology acts as your business enabler. An absence of a Technology Strategy Framework can lead to overspend on technologies, redundancy, and inefficiency.

A solid Technology Strategy Framework should include seven elements as the section below describes.

The House, a Modern Technology Framework

The House is a modern IT framework designed for CEOs that breaks down your technology requirements into 7 different “rooms”: insights & automation, brand experience, productivity, core business applications, departmental applications, infrastructure, and security.

Technology can be confusing and overwhelming. The House simplifies it. It is designed to give you a simple and clear view of your technology landscape, reveal gaps between your business objectives and technology capabilities, and can help you avoid redundancy, overspend, and security breaches.










Why should a CEO have a Strategic Technology Roadmap?

A CEO’s Strategic Technology Roadmap helps CEOs make smart decisions when it comes to their technology investment, and provides CEOs and their leadership teams with much-needed guidance. A Strategic Technology Roadmap is critical for the sustainability and growth of any business because it helps CEOs to:

  • Invest in the necessary technologies.
  • Avoid overspend and redundancy.
  • Efficiently manage the investment, deployment, and adoption of the new technologies.

What does a CEO’s Strategic Technology Roadmap entail?

The way we, at ProServeIT, present “what needs to be done to close the gap” is using a list of must-do, should-do, and could-do recommendations.



Things on the must-do list are things that either represent a significant risk to the business and need to be addressed immediately, or things where the return on investment is so immediate (even less than 9-12 months), that it makes perfect sense to spend the money and upgrade, because of how immediate the return is.


The should-do’s are things that are important for your organization to do, but require some intentional planning and/or budgeting before implementation. The Strategic Technology Roadmap, therefore, is a great opportunity to see where these should-do’s fit into the bigger picture.


The could-do’s are items that may be strategic, but perhaps aren’t as important to do at this exact moment. These could-do’s may become important in the future, so it’s best to schedule these items into your Strategic Technology Roadmap.
