Technological roadmapping (TR) is a complex business intelligence and strategic planning process. Due to its relatively high costs, duration, mobilisation of human resources and know-how, its hitherto applications were attributed mainly to long-term strategy formation in large corporations and as a tool supporting policy making. This paper will show how the recent development of web technologies and a public availability of foresight results have allowed to provide access to high-level roadmapping even for small and medium-sized enterprises. We will describe an implementation of the roadmapping process in .NET that may serve as an on-line interactive strategic planning and decision support system applying information technology foresight results. The system may be used as a base to solving IT investment planning problems and new product development and market placement problems (NPD-MP) in innovative companies. A web-based analytic machine that supports roadmapping is able to generate optimal technological investment strategies, visualised as multicriteria shortest paths in classical roadmapping diagrams. The system uses the integrated capacity offered by ontologies and semantic networks is a complex collaborative process of knowledge acquisition from heterogeneous information sources, its managing, sharing and processing. An example of the roadmapping process applied to develop a new computer based on IT foresight results will also be presented.
