Although nobody doubts its increasing importance, most companies continue to regard IT only as a support area. IT is about much more: it is one of the most important tools to realise business objectives. Recognising the significance of IT, leading companies use IT as an important tool of corporate governance to achive the strategic business goals. As the importance of IT is growing, responsible leaders must face new challenges. It is more important than ever to have a clear vision of the future, have an IT strategy in place, and develop a management structure that is in line with this strategy. A sound IT strategy connects business plans and objectives with IT development, and makes it possible to effectively communicate the aims of the IT area and justify IT budgets.
