Abstract: 

XYZ Solutions Inc. is a rapidly growing IT services company based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Following a series of acquisitions, the company is expanding market share and developing internally. IT systems are instrumental in supporting corporate strategy and internal operations. XYZ's IT strategy currently focuses on developing these systems. This analysis outlines enhancements to XYZ's existing IT strategy in order to strengthen the company's ability to utilize information technology. In developing these enhancements, the analysis reviews the history, structure, and strategies of XYZ and characterizes the current alignment between business objectives and internal R&D. Further to developing enhancement recommendations, the analysis provides an implementation plan to address key sources of business-IT misalignment. The enhancements to IT strategy are an opportunity for XYZ to develop a sustainable competitive advantage through improved planning, development, and usage of IT.
