TECHNOLOGY PLANNING
PROCESS

The foundation of the Blue Ocean Global Technology client experience is our Technology Planning Process.

With a longer sales cycle, more intense competition, and increased expectations, technology decisions impact organizational health. Technology pervades all aspects of business and must be coordinated with an organization's strategic plan. 

The Digital Revolution and the rate at which technology progresses create choice, but adopting emerging technology solutions can be confusing and overwhelming. Clients need a transparent, accountable, and proactive technology partner. Technology should not dictate a company's strategic vision. Organizations need to innovate, change, and implement a flexible strategy—not a laser-like, rigid plan. Technology has never been more critical to the growth and sustainability of a business. A rapidly changing technology landscape necessitates technology planning. 

The Blue Ocean Global Technology client experience is collaborative, transparent, and innovative. Prudent technology planning aligns mission, vision, and values. 

We obtain feedback from appropriate departments and foster relationships with key leaders prior to implementation. Technology planning requires time and effort; and is exactly what successful organizations rely upon to drive sustainable progress.

The Technology Planning Process

Establish & define the professional relationship.

Healthy client relationships begin with a thorough understanding of the importance of technology planning. Technology planning is a clearly defined process that coordinates your organization's mission, values, and vision. The process is ongoing and provides a framework for creating long-term value.

Gather client data & discuss technology goals.

Blue Ocean Global Technology will need qualitative and quantitative information to understand your situation. To assess your current technology position, we will assess where your organization is today. Together, we will discuss the importance of aligning your technology goals with your business strategy. We will also actively listen to your key areas of concern. You will also discuss your time horizon for results. Effective planning is predicated upon the prioritization of realistic, challenging, and obtainable goals.

Analyze & evaluate your current technology.

Blue Ocean Global Technology guides you through a collaborative discovery evaluation. After engaging key decision makers, our team thoroughly reviews current technology assets and priorities. We evaluate how you integrate your goals and needs. Objectivity is critical. Our client experience is defined by our technology planning process. We are proactive through reliable, responsive, and consistent communication.

Develop & discuss recommendations.

Together, we consider the options available, given your strategic plan, current technology, and resource constraints. The Technology Planning Process is client-dependent: options may be numerous and complex or few and simplistic. Effective presentation of recommendations helps you adopt an integrated approach and understand how change in one instance can affect other areas of your organization. At this stage, our team listens to concerns, provides a forum for open dialogue with key decision makers, and revises recommendations accordingly.

Implement first phase of the technology plan.

It is important to begin with purpose. This step necessitates mutual clarity and understanding. Together, we determine how to implement the most appropriate recommendations. The written technology plan provides a documented working framework. Implementation may include coordination across departments and collaboration with other partners. We recognize the importance of initial positive results to foster trust.

Monitor & update your technology plan.

Sound technology advice provides direction and guidance. Effective technology advice requires consistent client engagement and interaction because planning is an ongoing process. An integrated technology plan allows an organization to continuously build upon a foundation and create technology assets. Efficient and effective technology planning aligns strategy, branding, and execution.
