Book Description

Is it possible to actually measure the contribution IT makes to business? Are there ways to communicate complex IT topics to business leaders in ways they understand? This unique book uses the Troux Transformation Platform to show IT leaders how to reach their business partners.This book covers how to generate tremendous business value from aligning business strategy with IT strategy. It uses a leading product as the example of applying best practices to produce the aligned business.Best practices are explained in a clear language with a number of graphics.

When IT delivers solutions that are aligned with business goals, real value is created. This book is written in a unique style that uses the Troux Transformation Platform as the hallmark of how to create the aligned business. The book introduces topics spanning IT portfolio management, strategic alignment, application optimization, IT governance, visualization, generating value, and more. Each chapter contains a context of best practices followed by useful examples taken right out of the Troux product. The book also covers topics such as modern architecture modeling and supports the TOGAF methodology with the Troux product. There is even a chapter devoted to the topic of visualization. Most topics are introduced and discussed independently of the underlying product used for the examples. Thus, this book is a must read for anyone interested in business and IT strategic alignment.
