An IT Strategy and Roadmap recommends the strategic IT direction of an organisation based on business needs. It forecasts areas for improving technology. These changes result from an evaluation of existing IT infrastructure and services with a view to realising their full potential.

“The Cloud Stratagem team helped us identify room for improvement. They showed us how to best prioritise changes in order to streamline our everyday business processes.”

-David Carabott, CHT Architects


Cloud Stratagem uses the Component Business Model (CBM) methodology to determine the best-fit products, Solution Architecture and overall IT Strategy for our clients’ company.

Cloud Stratagem carries out the following steps to create a Technology Plan for our clients:

Review the AS IS Systems and Procedures

We review the current projects to engage stakeholder interviews and balance against team brainstorms.

Component Business Model and Portfolio Heatmap Creation

We build Portfolio Maps of all systems in order to define the “Best of Breed” industry solution. By overlaying our priorities on top of the Portfolio Map, we create a Portfolio Heatmap showing the various projects and their level of priority. This gives our clients insight into specific projects priorities.

Solution and System Product Selection

We advise the best way to select between the options. We provide a methodology to make final system selections. We work closely with clients to determine the preferred solution and budget for each project.

An Enterprise Architecture

This is the conceptual blueprint that defines the structure of an organisation. The intent of an IT Roadmap and Strategy is to plot the enterprise architecture as it will develop and be funded over time. This demonstrates how an organisation will effectively achieve its future objectives through technology.

A Final Report – IT Strategy and Roadmap

The final report includes all solution decisions, vendor findings, recommendations, and budget planning requirements. The timeline shows implementation measured against the CBM heatmaps, the Business Continuity plan, the comparison of AS IS with TO BE, and the final Roadmap spanning five years.
