CIOs Must MAP A Strategic Application Plan
Align IT Execution To Business Needs With Vision, Context, And Orchestration
February 4, 2008
Why Read This Report
The duties performed by CIOs are analogous to those of big-city mayors — neither executive has the chance to build a community from scratch, and most inherit a series of problems from predecessors: dated infrastructures, more demand than they can meet, a flurry of community development work-in-progress, and a host of constituents with conflicting social and political agendas. Like city neighborhoods spawned from unbridled growth, today's IT organizations need to implement a more strategic approach to application planning that will refocus IT efforts on the most important needs of community leaders. Model-based application planning (MAP) triangulates an approach from three key perspectives: 1) a rolling five-year vision of the community; 2) a context to serve as a common business/IT lexicon; and 3) orchestration across application, project, and infrastructure improvement efforts.
