Technology – Data – Applications, right? Well, kind of. No question, those are the most basic of the basic IT elements. However, for IT to be meaningful, a business need must drive its execution. To execute IT, you need people and tools. To execute IT well, you need strategy and architecture.
So what just happened? We quickly surfaced the essential elements of IT: Business, Strategy, Architecture, IT Portfolios (Business Solution, Information, Infrastructure, Architecture/Technology, and Project), People and Tools.
Why is a piece on the IT Elements our first entry? We wanted to explain our name and our focus. Elemental Links is an IT consulting firm specializing in strategy, architecture, IT portfolio planning and delivery for the enterprise.
