Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Create and maintain a plan for the acquisition, implementation and upgrade of technology infrastructure that meets established business functional and technical requirements and is in accord with the organisation’s technology direction. The plan should also consider future flexibility for capacity additions, transition costs, technical risks and, for technology upgrade purposes, the lifetime of the investment. The plan should be integrated with the organisation’s strategic and operational planning processes.
  2. Ensure that the plan includes a financial appraisal stating the ROI over the expected lifetime of the infrastructure.
  3. Review all acquisition plans considering risks, costs, benefits and technical conformance with corporate technology standards. Any deviations should be authorised by the IT architecture board. Approve all reviewed and accepted plans with a formal sign-off.
  4. Establish a feedback process to support continuous improvement and raise any suggested changes to the technology infrastructure plan, technology guidelines and standards.
