Every year it's practically the same, IT professionals everywhere hear, "let's align IT with the business." Then you remember how it all worked out last year. You ask whether this assignment is futile or not. You remember last year's game plan.
Besides trying to obtain enough money to fund IT programs and projects, hiring and retaining skilled professionals, and building effective relationships in support of IT initiatives with senior executives, these are major occupational hazards. Nobody's complaining. Just telling it like it is.
What turns you on are the several key IT projects that there never seems enough time to do, There's formulating or implementing enterprise architecture, unifying "islands of automation", or using IT to enhance service to customers or citizens. And, don't forget you have to manage or replace legacy systems, and consolidate or virtualize your IT infrastructure.
Keeping the network, servers, Internet, applications, security, and management in excellent working order is always mission critical. IT is not just one thing. IT performs many functions, each one requiring different knowledge and skill sets. When trying to align IT to the business it is important to understand both the company's and each individual department's goals, incentives, KPIs, budget, and projects.
