As companies grow and decide to compete internationally, they must formulate global information technology plans to manage their worldwide expansion. Many companies decide to outsource some of these IT projects overseas to gain competitive advantages. Lee and Mary’s Gourmet Ice Cream is a business in the middle of planning for a major global expansion. (See the attachment “Five-Year IT Global Strategic Plan.”) To facilitate this expansion, the company’s IT systems will need to undergo a major upgrade.
You have been hired as the IT consultant by the CEO of Lee and Mary’s Gourmet Ice Cream to recommend changes to the five-year IT globalization plan for the company. The CEO provided you with a version of the plan that focuses on the company expanding its business and technology into the international markets of Great Britain and Western Europe. Unfortunately, the organization’s chief information officer (CIO) just left the company for personal reasons, which leaves the company with some decisions still to make in regard to its technology infrastructures, processes, and systems to support the expansion. You were told that there is $20,000,000 available to improve technology systems and processes to meet expanded business goals. You are being asked to adopt the role of the recently departed CIO and to recommend updates to the existing plan. Your task is to evaluate the current five-year plan, research technological solutions, work with existing stakeholders, and then recommend changes to the “Activities” section of five of the plan targets.
Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly.
