Strategic Information System Planning and Innovative Technology Roadmap

Strategic Information System Planning and Innovative Technology Roadmap

Strategic information systems (SIS) incorporate the realization of the strategic importance of Information Systems for Accenture’s competitiveness, as well as the methods, tools and the process to achieve it. The alignment of IT and business strategies lies at the core of any effort to use IT for gaining and sustaining competitive advantage. Business and IT strategies alignment is not a one-off process, but a continuous endeavor which requires the setup of an appropriate SIS planning mechanism.
