A technology roadmap is a document or guide that outlines an organization’s technology initiatives, products, services and strategies. It details the technology your business is already using, what you will need to implement in the future, how to avoid risks and costly mistakes and how to upgrade outdated technologies.
Technology roadmaps can help organizations to understand both the current needs and predict future needs, making it easier to determine technology requirements. Technology roadmaps also give companies a framework for surviving more turbulent times and help them quickly adapt if the technology landscape changes in their industry.
As the roadmaps include detailed information about current and past systems, they can be used as tools for measuring the success of products or technical initiatives. Moreover, given the pace of technological change, a roadmap can dispel a lot of uncertainty across departments and get everyone aligned under the same goals and further provide better insight into the company’s technology initiatives.
Knowing about typical outlines of technology solutions will help the organization move forward while avoiding costly mistakes.
