What is an IT Roadmap and why do you need one?
Posted 12th November 2020
Building up a business is always a bit of a journey. There are detours, pit stops, and sometimes you might suddenly find yourself a bit lost. Just like any successful trip (which doesn’t involve someone screaming “I’m going to turn this car around right now”), the success of any company will usually involve some kind of plan or road map. It’s usually known as a business strategy. Connected to that should be other strategies, and one of those should always be an IT Roadmap.
An IT Roadmap is a way of illustrating the short and long-term IT and technology goals of your business. It looks at where you are now and where you plan to be in the future, and plots the investment you may need in keeping your IT up to date or digitally transforming your business. As experienced IT Consultants , the team at LP Networks audit every section of your IT Strategy , looking at what services you currently run and what hardware you are using, before plotting out an IT Roadmap that works alongside your short and long term digital goals.
LP Networks are also able to offer a vCIO service . This provides your business with the opportunity to have a virtual Chief Information Officer, someone who can ensure that your IT strategy fits with your overall business strategy. Think of them as the navigator for the journey. Using a vCIO is a cost-effective way of ensuring that your company not only has a strategic approach to its IT growth, but also that it has access to someone who has up to the minute knowledge of the latest technology. This includes ways to keep your data safe and secure.
If your business is currently undergoing a digital transformation, or if you have realised that your IT is going to need an overhaul in order to meet your overall objectives, contact the team at LP Networks for a chat or a virtual meeting.
