IT Strategy & Architecture Principles and Practices

The growing technology and its rapid changing in applications urge the top leaders and the board members to adopt technology in their business models and frameworks. Two terms are widely used for such an immigration, Digital twining and Digitalization. In this course, both terms will be illustrated in details and how they can be done to achieve what is called ‘IT Governance’. This course will help leaders to plan fusing technology with their business via the identification of the main principles and most common practices. Particularly, to identify gaps between IT function in strategy, structure, people, process and technology and your future anticipated organizational direction. Furthermore, this course will illustrate the blueprinting process to craft an IT migration plan. Marble Arches training team provides a unique experience of training with a complementary consultation session.
