Overview

IBM IT strategy and architecture services: the road to IT improvement and business success

Rethink your IT strategy and architecture
IBM's IT strategy and architecture services are designed to help you establish a business-driven approach to infrastructure architecture and the management of IT-enabled business services. We can help you identify opportunities for reduced costs, reduced risk, improved quality and greater business value. Strategy and Planning services produce a roadmap of clearly defined projects designed to extract more value from your existing assets. This roadmap can also be used to support the deployment of critical business-driven projects, like SOA initiatives, or leverage technology innovation, like cloud computing.

Business projects that leverage newer technologies, such as virtualization, SOA and Cloud Computing, can have significant implications for the infrastructure and the management capability to support increasingly complex service configurations. We can help you understand these implications and build a plan to achieve your goals faster with a collaborative approach that uses internationally accepted best practices, proven methods, deep skills and our robust reference models and architectures.

Every SOA project results in the need to plan both infrastructure changes and the ability to manage the new application and infrastructure service configurations. The services are designed to help you:
    • Predict the impact of SOA on your organization, while promoting adoption and implementation
