Technology Infrastructure Plan

Create and maintain a technology infrastructure plan that is in accordance with the IT strategic and tactical plans. The plan should be based on the technological direction and include contingency arrangements and direction for acquisition of technology resources. It should consider changes in the competitive environment, economies of scale for information systems staffing and investments, and improved interoperability of platforms and applications.

Create a technology infrastructure plan based on the IT strategic and tactical plans and technology direction, which includes factors such as consistent integrated technologies, business systems architecture and contingency aspects of infrastructure components, and directions for acquisition of IT assets.
  2. Perform ongoing assessments of the current vs. planned information systems, resulting in a migration strategy or road map to achieve the future state.
  3. Include transitional and other costs, complexity, technical risks, future flexibility, value, and product/vendor sustainability in the technology infrastructure plan.
  4. Identify changes in the competitive environment, economies of scale for information systems staffing and investments, and improved interoperability of platforms and applications in the technology infrastructure plan.
