Optimizing the Value of Technology Investments with IT Strategic Planning
To help Intel achieve future goals and objectives, Intel IT engages in an annual strategic planning cycle that aligns the authors' activities to those of Intel's business groups. The planning cycle provides Intel's IT leaders with comprehensive direction, including strategies and tactics, over the next three to five years. Each planning cycle includes an in-depth assessment of business goals and challenges, technology trends, environmental factors, and current IT capabilities. They then translate these considerations into resource-feasible roadmaps and investment decisions - prioritizing IT spending and allocating resources based on Intel's business needs to derive the greatest business value from every IT dollar invested.
