An Integrated Framework For Strategic Information Systems Planning And Development


Information has emerged as an agent of integration and the enabler of new competitiveness for today's enterprise in the global marketplace. However, has the paradigm of strategic planning changed sufficiently to support the new role of information systems and technology? We reviewed the literature for commonly used or representative information planning methodologies and found that certain insufficiencies exist. There are six major such methodologies and all of them seem to lack an ability to connect IS strategy to corporate strategy or IS planning to IS development. An integration of strategy with planning and development through enterprise information resources - which capture and characterize the enterprise - will shorten the response cycle for employing and deploying IS to achieve competitiveness. A reference model and the outline of a methodology is towards that end is proposed in this work.
