Course Description

Information Technology (IT) has become the core of any business in any industry, and therefore strategy of the business/ enterprise should be essentially powered by IT and digital technologies. 

With the evolvement of technologies, business models have rapidly changed and transformed. IT strategy is no longer a supportive department as it was considered in the past but the core of the business and the driver behind the business model. Consequently, the enterprise business strategy must be built at the same time with the IT/digital strategy, whilst considering the values the IT and the business models offer to the business, customers and employees with the best competitive advantage. 

The enterprise architecture is one of the essential and most crucial aspects of the strategy, in addition to the innovation approach of designing all business processes. Digital mindsets of the executive leaders and the harmony with the IT leaders are the drivers behind the change and transformation where new organisational structure, internal capabilities and skillsets are required to compete in the new digital economy. 

As a result of digital disruption, building and managing the enterprise and business strategy must be leveraged by the new digital transformation strategy with new business models enabled by digital technologies (such as Big Data Analytics, Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain). 

This course will help IT leaders to be armed with the right knowledge and skills to be able to see the world trends and the new vision of businesses in the digital economy, and to build and manage their strategic IT plans successfully. The course will explain the corporate strategy and the strategic management of the IT landscapes with the organisational structure, and provide a toolkit for planning and directing the evolutionary development of the landscape. The key elements of this planning toolkit are IT landscape management and technical standardisation.
