Technology planning is the process of identifying IT solutions that best fit with the current and future needs of your company. It allows you to make smart, well-informed decisions that keep your business on the forefront of technology trends. Forecasting what your hardware and software needs are is vital to your organization’s ability to remain competitive against other businesses.
Since it’s an involved process that takes time and resources, it can appear as a luxury to those with an “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it,” attitude. However, technology planning can help organizations make significant gains, leading to greater productivity and improved staff morale.
