Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Ensure that adequately skilled staff members within the IT department routinely monitor technological developments, competitor activities, infrastructure issues, legal requirements and regulatory environment changes, and provide relevant information to senior management. Consult third-party experts to obtain views and confirm findings and proposals of internal staff.
  2. Ascertain that the IT department maintains membership in vendor user groups, subscribes to technical journals and maintains a research budget.
  3. Evaluate new technologies in the context of their potential contribution to the realisation of broader business goals and targets using established criteria, e.g., ROI, or ability to achieve market leadership.
  4. Ensure that the organisation’s legal counsel monitors legal and regulatory conditions in all relevant locations and informs the IT steering committee of any changes that may impact the technology infrastructure plan.
