Enterprises that develop and execute a network technology plan generally provide the proper services and support. Those individuals assigned the planning task should complete the following activities to establish the technology/services direction, including the requisite support services for the business units:
- Verify technology choices dovetail with business requirements.
- Identify high level support requirements early-on.
- Use a fast-path analysis to complete the planning process.
Implementing a successful planning activity does not require a large budget or a cadre of technical personnel – just the use of some common business sense.
