The Business of IT: Driving Innovation, Efficiency and Transparency to Maximize the Value of IT in the Postdigital World
Welcome to the postdigital age where IT departments are no longer seen as “cost centers” but key enablers of growth and innovation. As a result, it’s now more important than ever for companies to not only ensure that their IT investments are cost-effective, but achieve broader business value. However, as any IT Financial Management leader knows, accurately calculating the true cost and ROI of any given IT investment is easier said than done.
Taking place April 28-30th of 2014, the 9th IT Financial Management Week (ITFM) is designed to address this very challenge. A must-attend event for IT Financial Management leaders, the 9th ITFM Week will showcase proven strategies for not only determining the cost of services, but effectively managing and allocating IT resources based on business needs.
A must-attend event for IT Financial Management leaders, join us in Chicago April 28-30th and discover how others have maximized the return on IT investments by:
- Leveraging IT financial management tools and principles to better understand the financial impact of IT decisions and optimize IT costs
- Creating a top-down financial plan to strategically allocate IT resources and enable agility
- Building a culture of transparency and accountability by developing clear reporting structures and fostering cross-functional communication
- Hiring and equipping IT FM talent with the knowledge and skills required to successfully develop business-driven IT plans
- Clearly defining best practices and governance structures to optimize run-the-business spending
You Asked, We Listened!
In addition to the real-life, in-depth case study presentations we’re known for, this year we’ll also be incorporating interactive Knowledge Sharing Sessions. A combination of case study presentation and discussion based formats, these extended sessions provide participants with the rare opportunity to problem solve, trade information and brainstorm one-on-one with peers in a structured yet informal setting.
