IT Strategies, very much like business strategies, are driven by the long term objectives of organizations. A government agency that focuses on delivering an outstanding service to its constituency will have different strategies than an organzation that develops innovative products.
IT is a tool that organizations use to deliver business objectives efficiently and effectively. IT must understand the business objectives to:
Participate in identifying, selecting and prioritizing business initiatives that effectively leverage IT resources
Invest IT resources prudently
Identify evolving and emerging technologies that could provide business differentiation
