Optimize IT Policies to Support Digital Strategy

Optimize IT Policies to Support Digital Strategy

This IDC Perspective explores the important role played by IT policies as IT revamps its vision, mission, goals, and strategies to support enterprise transformation. This study helps CIOs transform IT policies from underused and restrictive artifacts to agents that help drive behavioral and organizational change. It explains why digital transformation requires new IT policies, identifies the key elements of new IT policies, and describes the purposes that effective policies serve. Policies are the linchpin that ensures rational, consistent decision making and execution."IT policies need to move beyond prescriptive 'rules of order and conduct' to become informational, educational, and assistive documents that help IT and LOB workers perform their roles more efficiently and effectively," says Marc Strohlein, adjunct research advisor with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "New IT policies need to provide clarity, simplicity, and guidance in a complex and rapidly transforming technology world."
