IS Management and Technology Strategies (2004)

July, 2004


This special report, based on surveys of over 200 IS executives conducted by Computer Economics during 1Q04, examines the TCO and ROI of every major category of hardware, a wide array of software systems, several e-strategies, as well as several critical technical strategies such as server consolidation, data warehousing and on demand computing. The current level of activity of these strategies will be reviewed as well. Many critical IS disciplines are examined including personnel, financial, workload, recovery, security, problem management—and many others. The information provided in this study is a useful tool when building a technology roadmap that is supported by solid IS management practices.
