Every executive understands the importance and necessity of technologies in achieving business objectives. A simple, easy to understand bird's eye view of your technology requirements is a game changer in achieving growth and sustainability of your business while avoiding redundancy and overspend.
CEOs and senior executives
A 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 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.
We designed an interactive map of the Modern Technology House that allows you to explore each of the 7 "rooms". Download the interactive map today!
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:
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.
