Strategic Technologies: What are they?

By | July 7, 2014
This entry is part 1 of 33 in the series Strategic Technologies

Strategic technologies are technologies which are called out in the IT strategy as being key enablers to the business strategy.  During the environment scan trends and forces are studied, and threats and opportunities are identified.  The strategy is crafted to respond to threats and opportunities by adding or removing strategic business capabilities.  Some new business capabilities will depend upon new technologies, and using new technologies typically requires new IT capabilities such as the ability to develop with and operate the technologies.   All of this is graphed in a strategic capability network (SCN).

This series does not build an SCN, but simply contains an inventory of strategic technologies which I will refer to later when I illustrate typical SCN patterns for banks.
