IT Planning & Roadmaps

business men talking

CIOs and IT are no longer about only supporting day-to-day technology to operate a business. IT today is an integral part in building and supporting strategic business initiatives. Partner with an IT consultant that can help you with your journey. An IT roadmap documents how technology will be used to support organizational growth and agility. As a collaborative tool, it helps align leadership on strategy and investments. Ricoh’s team of vCIOs partner with you to:

1. Review your business plan
2. Set technology goals
3. Assess your IT environment
4. Chart business needs against technology requirements
5. Identify gaps
6. Develop the right strategy by outlining tools, people and processes
7. Prioritize actions and next-steps

  • Collaborate effectively with other business units on new projects and priorities
  • Provide executive insight into costs and resourcing needs
  • Improve short-term and long-term planning
  • Anticipate technology needs and plan for appropriate software and vendors
