ICT health check: Win-win for ICT and business
Conclusion: ICT health checks enable organisations to better understand risks and prioritise activities to both maintain and improve the performance and reliability of ICT in support of business outcomes.
ICT health checks can be conducted as a light touch in the first instance, with detailed in-depth health checks being conducted as follow-up activities in specific areas where and when necessary.
An effective ICT health check strategy will be business-focused and not based on technology alone. Implanting health checks as part of your annual ICT budget planning will provide timely advice on the organisation’s ICT health and provide in-built regular reviews of ICT health to ensure business outcomes are achieved without unnecessary risk.
