Every technology organization needs a strategy, whether this is a short, medium or long term. In today’s dynamic environment, there are many options available to both solve business problems, but also provide a capability for revenue growth to potentially reach customers that were previously inaccessible. Technology strategy includes addressing infrastructure such as cloud, analytics such as business intelligence, artificial intelligence, or machine learning.  Not all of these are useful to companies nor are companies capable of implementing such technologies. The strategic planning process is designed to put forward existing and future technology opportunities that match or help address burning business requirements.  This process requires business involvement (and ownership in many cases), to insure that executes understand the implications of technologies and what it means to their organizations. Finally, the ability of the technology organization to actually execute a strategy is vital and NomadCIO provides a reality check to executives to fully understand their internal ability to execute, adopt and train employees, customers and/or suppliers.
