dc.description.abstract Information technology (IT) can be a key contributor for the successful implementation of business strategies. However, companies normally find it hard to synchronize their evolving business strategies with the capabilities in IT. This thesis analyzes the key contributors to the problems in synchronizing business strategy and Information Technology and suggests both management and technical frameworks for an agile IT infrastructure that can stay in sync with the evolving business strategy. Agility in IT infrastructure means the ability for the infrastructure to accommodate evolving needs and business strategies without significant re-architecture. There is no magic bullet that could induce agility into an IT infrastructure and its management. But, this thesis studies the best practices in management and technology which are being used by industry leaders successfully. en_US
