IT Strategic Planning
In today's market, IT has become an essential element for almost any business to run. In the past,IT was a "nice to have", now it is a "MUST" to stay competitive and to address all requirements put on companies to be in business. Though IT is critical, very rarely is the IT strategy closely aligned with the Business or Business Strategy, where IT can provide direct results to meet or exceed identified business goals or vision. As a result, IT is often considered a cost center, allowing for consistent budget cuts and lack of support from the business to address important IT requirements.

Because we take a top down view - IT strategy is derived through business initiatives and is communicated consistently from a business view point, creating more clarity about ITs role in business success. As part of this effort, C2S helps change the culture of IT to take a more business aligned view, creating clear threads and decision criteria to allow IT to make decision based on the business. In turn, all IT decisions can then be clearly articulated back to business, demonstrating how they align with their needs.
