IT strategy and planning must be aligned with business requirements and objectives in order to achieve the value that the company expects. IT management should ensure that IT contributes to strategic business planning and identifies the capabilities available to support business goals and other opportunities. The cornerstone is the in-depth knowledge and understanding of the company by CIOs and IT staff. It is vital for an organisation to understand society. Strong, weak and competitive environment. CIOs and IT staff must understand not only the latest technological developments but also the business environment.
