Abstract

Strategic information system planning (SISP) is based on two core arguments. The first argument is that, at a minimum, a firm's IS investments should be aligned with the overall business strategy, and in some cases, might even become an emerging source of competitive advantage. The second core argument behind SISP is that companies can best achieve IS-based alignment or competitive advantage by following a proactive, formal and comprehensive process, such a process is especially relevant to enterprise resource planning investments, given their costs and long-term impact. This paper aims to explore the SISP process, and highlights the potential benefits from SISP implementation. In addition, it explores the major issues associated with SISP implementation. It provides an insight into better and further understanding of the SISP process, the benefits and the implementation issues.
