The need for information technology policies and procedures is no longer limited to large corporations. Increasingly, businesses and organizations of all sizes are depending on information technology to deliver system security, reliability, and performance. Even the smallest businesses have become dependent on technology. This in turn means that applications have to be developed to provide information technology strategies for managing IT solutions. Your information technology strategy must be customizable, not just scaleable. It will need to meet your needs rather than accommodate your size.

This reality will require critical evaluation of alternative information technology strategies. In particular, attention will be given to implementation across an enterprise environment. A comprehensive strategy will encompass IT resource allocation and development. This means systems production and monitoring will be maintained in line with the identified performance objectives.

There are a number of activities that come together to formulate the organization's objectives. Information storerooms, recovery, dissemination, capture, and processing define the hierarchy of information systems. At its core, the information technology strategies are aspects of the organizational strategy.

Making departments, vendors, customers, and decision makers' partners a part of the process facilitates successful implementation. Your information technology strategies are an important part of how the inflow of information is organized and therefore maximized. By making the implementation part of a broader set of objectives, your partners benefit as well. Smooth integration can also reduce the cost of implementation by reducing the cost of training.
