Luis Amaral Henrique S. Mamede Information Systems Planning - How to enhance creativity? The perspective of using creativity techniques or some adaptations, to help innovation in the area of information systems seems to be promising. In this article we propose a strategy for the introduction of creativity in the information systems planning in order to build more agile and efficient information systems, allowing therefore more competitive business.
However the paradigm of strategic planning changes sufficiently to support the new role of information and technology. The question is, are changes can support the new role of information and technology and what is the relationship between strategic information system planning with the development database in an organization.
Therefore, the development of strategic information system planning is importance in an organization. Strategic information systems planning SISP is the process of creating a portfolio based on the use of information system in order to achieve organizational goals and objectives.
Within SISP, organizational can clearly define their organizational goalsthe critical success factor CSF and the problem areas within the organization activity. The first one is SISP viewed as the process of identifying a portfolio of computer based applications that will assist an organization in achieving the business plan and at the same time achieve the business organization goals.
Meanwhile the second one is SISP involved searching for application with a high impact and with the ability to create an advantage over competitors to gain competitive advantage. Based on the theory of SISP, it can be define that the process of identifying a portfolio of computer-based applications to be implemented aligned with the corporate strategy and has the ability to create an advantage over competitors.
Organization goals is analyze by defining what exactly organization hope in order to accomplish the goals.
After organization goals have been analyzed, then critical success factor will evaluated so that it will affect the organization goals and objective in long term. Critical success factor is the element that organization should know and must work in order to survive in the business environmental.
And lastly, identify the problem areas which are the weaknesses that organization already have. Strategic information systems planning help organization in overall strategic planning process in effectively and efficiently.
SISP participants include top business, functional area, and information system management. In an organization, the success of IS plan can be determined with the involvement and commitment of senior management. Involvement of senior management is very important to determine whether the success or failure of the project.
Senior management was the backlog behind the success of the project. This actually gain top management commitment. Communication and commitment will also help in increasingly the visibility of IT in organization.
Alignment of IT organization and business goals has been used to control and ensure that business goals will achieve and all the operation included the IT and IS that used in running the organization will keep in track.
SISP alignment will also help in identifying strategic applications, identifying new and higher payback applications, and developing an information architecture. SISP is needed for the system to ensure the system that used in the organization integrated with other system or not.
Without Strategic information systems planning in an organization, may lead to missed opportunity, duplicate system, incompatible system and wasted resources. Besides, SISP supports the identification of opportunities to use information systems for strategic purpose.
SISP also ensures that adequate resources or the use of scarce resources are allocated to critical application and the use of resources in properly manner.
With SISP, can ensures that the IS function support the organizational goals and objectives and also the activities at every level. Having a good strategic information system planning in organization, will determine whether the organization will success or failure.
The reason why organization needs good strategic information system planning is that it can help organization to avoid misused of scarce resources. By planning, only projects that can generate good returns will get investors from the firm. A good planning is very important to avoid problem such as the misuse and wasted resources in form of system that nobody likes and used the system effectively.term planning of IT costs, investments in IT-based information systems (IS), as well as their im- pact on the business.
Long term and more strategic considerations in IS planning also . Strategic Information System Introduction Strategic information system is a schemed systematic approach that aids companies in altering sensibly their structural organizations.
The changes are due to implicate directly towards their business and operational strategies. Strategic Information Systems Planning (SISP) is an important topic for managers and researchers alike.
However, there is evidence of a gap between SISP research and practice. Taking this situation as a motivation, we conducted an in depth case study on SISP to investigate this gap. Improving strategic planning within the realm of information technology management is consistently identified by top corporate executives as a critical competitive issue.
Strategic information systems are the information systems that companies use to help achieve their goals and become more efficient. Businesses use these systems to achieve a competitive advantage on their competitors as they seek to provide a good or service in a . information systemsplaning process and models for strategic IS planning. the nolan model, four stage model, McFarlan's model and evalion of these models- authorSTREAM Presentation. Abstract—Strategic Information Systems Planning (SISP) is an important activity for helping organization to identify strategic applications and to align an organization’s strategy with effective information systems to achieve organization’s objectives.
While relevant literature in the area is replete with descriptions of planning tools and methodologies, investigations that examine this activity from the perspective of process-based characteristics, or “profiles,” are. Abstract—Strategic Information Systems Planning (SISP) is an important activity for helping organization to identify strategic applications and to align an organization’s strategy with effective information systems to achieve organization’s objectives.
