Executive brief for an online retail business


Imagine you are the CIO of an online retail organization that has experienced above average growth because of the surge in internet shopping. The company has put together a strategic plan for the next 5 years that centers around expanding the online retail business and moving into the international marketplace.

The board of directors has charged you with mapping out the next 5 years of infrastructure needs for the company. They would like to see your plans supported by current research.

Using the information from the Arctic Inc. Strategic Plan, create a 4-5 page executive brief in which you:

  • Create a risk assessment of 5 potential technology issues faced when completing the strategic plan with a focus on cloud expansion.
  • Write a risk identification and mitigation plan for high-risk issues found during the risk assessment.
  • Develop an enterprise infrastructure plan that would support the growth-oriented strategic plan following a cloud-based operating structure.
  • Propose controls and governance policies that will manage technology change in the company, keeping pace with growth.
  • Develop 3 key performance indicators to measure the success of the strategic plan.

Cite at least two sources to support your infrastructure needs according to APA guidelines.
