Next Level Transition Center will be in tune with the changes of worldwide industries when it comes to information technology.

Introduction With each passing year, current technologies continue to evolve or change while new technology or innovations emerge that, in some instances, profoundly change markets, societies, or ways of living. For all organizations, to include the military, the persistent change of technology means that organizations must also evolve and change accordingly. Based on research by Accenture’s Paul Nunes and Tim Breene in 2011, only 7 percent of companies that cease to grow ever survive over the long term, which serves as a strong warning for any organization about the need to change. In addition to technological change, the military faces many other challenges as well. The most significant challenges include budgetary constraints, mandated drawdowns in personnel strength, and numerous mission demands across the globe.
Our business strategy involves providing customers with differentiated, easy to use, secure products and solutions that leverage information to meet customer needs. The types of technology and levels of service that are acceptable to customers and members today will not necessarily be acceptable in the future, requiring us to anticipate and meet marketplace demands for technology. (Aetna Inc., 2014, p.65) Even with this chosen strategy, company’s still need to be competitive on cost.
Briefing for CIO Information System Acquisition Executive Summary The acquisition of an information technology (IT) system by a healthcare organization must incorporate several different concerns. Generally, there is a process by which the organization determines what functions and capabilities are essential for the new IT system to provide.

Information system (IS) is an arrangement of information (data), processes, people, and information technology that interact to collect, process, store, and present information that support the organizations. Information systems are complex system and therefore it is essential to approach their acquisition, implementation, and management with proven methodologies (Burns, Bradley, & Weiner, 2011, p. 389). System acquisition refers to the process that occurs from the time the decision is made to select a new system (or replace an existing system) until the time a contract has been negotiated and signed (Wager, Lee, & Glaser, 2013, p. 210).

Alternative Strategies The original business strategy, which is still not fully implemented or thought out, is still intact and being somewhat utilized. Part of getting from where we are now to where we want to go, is to put together a comprehensive business and growth strategy plan that, brings about the most results. The original business strategy resembled that of a small business that had the most growth with the least risk. With little risk also means little or no technology. The company has changed, the competition is more intense and the economy is weakened. A new strategy that aligns with technology is essential in order to be successful.

With the emergence of IT from the back room to the forefront of business brings the alignment issue under the spotlight like never before. And as

The Five Competitive Forces model use Information Technology as a tool for implementing change but technology become sophisticated nowadays in today’s business world where Information Technology is seen as a factor for change. In the end, the Five Competitive Forces model cannot be considered as outdated because each company is operation in a micro-network of Buyers, Suppliers, Substitutes, New Entrants and Competitors. This idea is valid for each competition based economy. However, it is important that one cannot solely rely on Michael Porter’s model of five forces when forming a business strategy and examining business
Successful use of the Porter Model Analysis includes identifying the sources of competition, the strength and likelihood of that competition existing, and strategic recommendations for the action a company should take to develop barriers to the various forms of competition (Prahalad and Gary, 1990). With the realization about intensity and power of competitive forces, organizations can develop options to influence them in a way that improves their own competitive position. The result could be a new strategic option, e.g. a new positioning; differentiation for competitive products of strategic partnerships.
