Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is an umbrella term that includes any communication device or application, as well as the various services and applications associated with them and are usually spoken of in a particular context.
It is generally thought that the importance of ICTs is in ability to create greater access to information and communication. It is so important that The United Nations, through its UN Development Programme actively promotes ICTs for Development as a means of bridging the digital divide between technological “have” and “have not” areas.
Now with such importance placed on ICT globally, one would think that businesses would go to great lengths to ensure that this strategic asset is managed in such a way as to maximize its’ importance within any organization.
Whether developing management information systems to support decision making or facilitating better communication, effective Information and Communications Technology (ICT) must emphasize the importance of good information management. The principal challenge and the main focus of this article is to consider how best to ensure that information management, broadly defined, can both influence and facilitate corporate strategy to enhance a business’competitiveness and ultimate profitability.
We are all familiar with IT Projects that have failed…and though we can place various spins or reasons on why these occurred it is quite clear that Information and Communications Technology is seen as separate from the business process that it seeks to automate or improve.
The overall strategy of a business and its information infrastructure cannot and should not be separated in terms of strategic thinking and planning. The information and Communications Technology requirements must be understood within the vertical business process along with the certain fundaments.
