Effective IT strategy requires a comprehensive approach that aligns IT and the business by addressing multiple areas of discipline including IT risk management, operational efficiency, IT best practice and technology enablement. In particular, it requires a process that follows a proven model and takes into account an organization’s unique culture and attitudes toward risk.
At Symantec, we believe that good IT strategy should be capable of doing two things at the same time. IT strategy written and executed in the right way should drive efficiency up and risk down.
Many organizations today have become too fixated on one or other of these two focus areas, this can lead to inefficient use of money and resources (if focus is too fixated on “risk”) or unacceptable risk postures (when IT strategy focuses too heavily on efficiency). Clearly a balance is needed. The Symantec INFORM methodology helps our clients to find that balance by thinking comprehensively about IT and the business that it serves.
The Symantec INFORM methodology has been proven and has evolved over the past decade but has always had one objective in mind: help our customers to create IT programmes that reduce risk, improve operational efficiencies and align IT with the business that it serves.
Using proven techniques our experts work with you to capture the unique dynamics of your business in order to create useful artifacts that help your strategic IT decision making processes.
