The Strategic information systems plan (SISP), derived from the strategic business plan, identifies the information systems and technologies required to support the business strategy identified in the strategic business plan.
An SISP is like a roadmap that helps IS managers determine where to go and how to get there by identifying current and future information requirements and matching these needs with existing systems and technologies to identify any potential gaps between what is available and what should be available to promote good decision making.
The SISP should specifically target the following four areas:
- Aligning IS investment with business goals
- Exploiting information technologies for competitive advantage
- Ensuring the efficient management of IS resources
- Developing technology policies and practices
