A clear, hands on approach using our Comprehensive Process
A business system plan is a set of transitionary diagrams, action lists, and financial plans to depict how IT systems need to change over time to achieve new business capabilities and/or reduce business and IT costs. By merging elements of business strategy, IT asset management, application rationalization, enterprise architecture, financial planning, and portfolio management, a business system plan lays out a manageable path from current business practices and systems to a desired state that incorporates new functionality and cost structures.
Outlined below are the general steps Clear IT Architecture would take to inventory what you have, understand how well it supports your current and future business needs, and then lay out a plan to get from here to there. Notice that it is not focused only on IT topics, but the corresponding business relationships that must be understood and documented to deliver a clear, comprehensive enterprise architecture.
Depending on the nature of your company's needs, different topics would be emphasized for initial work, with other parts tabled for later effort.
