Planning for larger technology related projects is a challenge for many companies. As needs, technology, and costs change, the IT budget needs to adapt. Knowing the direction, the costs, and the time it will take, will help you plan accordingly.
Determining the next steps or direction is a never ending moving target. There are often many ways and even more options that you can choose from. Technology changes and advances so quickly, it takes a full time job to keep up with it.
