Abstract

This book provides a clear and concise overview of Information Management covering the key aspects of infrastructure, design, information assets and managing information. Part 1 explores the diversity and changing nature of managing the information management function. Part 2 investigates the role of information as an organizational resource. Part 3 focuses on managing organizational data and information. Part 4 examines the role of information management in organizational strategy and change. Taken from http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0750666684/qid=1140866329/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_0_1/203-1305749-8086302
The subject of this chapter is to expand on the relationship between strategy and information systems. Initially the need for a business strategy is explained together with a suggested overview of the business strategic planning process. The way in which this necessitates an information systems strategy is covered. There are many frameworks within which information systems strategy can be viewed. One framework is outlined and its various components are explained. Each emphasises a different perspective on the issues that a firma may wish to take into account when formulating strategy. They all have one feature in common though - they acknowledge the need for an information systems strategy to be determined by the business needs of the organisation, not by the functions of available technology.
