Current IT system analysis

Consider which aspects of your current IT system are working well for your organisation and which are not. List all the components of your IT system in the column headed 'Components of current IT system'. In the next column, indicate whether you need to make a change to this element:

  • Is it out of date, not working, not needed, or incompatible with your goals?
  • What hardware and software is obsolete?
  • Are there any specific issues with your Internet connection?
  • How are repairs and maintenance done, and what is the support available?
  • Do you have an effective network and website?

Now think about how the IT system you have in place now will cope in the future:

  • What policy and practice issues may arise in meeting your IT goals?
  • Are your current equipment (hardware) and programs (software) compatible with what you hope to do?
  • How many people will be using the equipment now and in 3-5 years, and where will they be located?
  • Do you need a network?
  • Do you need remote access?
  • What training and support will be needed?
