Business IT Services Technology Roadmap

What is a Technology Roadmap?

A Business or IT Technology Roadmap is a standard architecture product best created in the form of a static or dynamic A0-sized architecture visualization used by CxOs and IT Management.

With this roadmap, the management will have an overview for themselves and for the business of when and what new technology will be introduced in the organization.

How is this Technology Roadmap template build up?

This technology roadmap template relates different types of information together, compliant to the Dragon1 EA & Performance Framework: 1) Strategy (Left and Bottom sections), 2) Architecture (Middle section and Right sections) and 3) Business Changes (Middle Bottom section).

In the upper middle of the business roadmap template (as part of the architecture information) a series of departments is visualized with a meaningful photo. This is done so the department heads that visit the IT manager and see the roadmap on the wall, immediately see they are recognized as a stakeholder to provide requirements.
