The systems you implement today will be with you for roughly five years. It is important that you select vendors who can demonstrate clarity of focus in their roadmap of your businesses future. Don’t just concentrate on who can do what now but look at who is demonstrating thoughtful leadership.
This can help shape your own business technology strategy.
What are your business growth plans for the next 5 years? Are you planning on expanding? Acquiring new premises? Buying another business? Will your hospital, for example, be merging with another hospital? Are departments looking to be merged or moved to a centralised location? The right questions at the right time are crucial to developing a business technology strategy that will be just right for your business today and tomorrow.
