Rolling Meadows, IL, USA (10 May 2005)—With a recent Gartner study indicating that 20 percent of all information technology (IT) investments are wasted each year, ensuring the value of IT is critical. To help executives maximize the value of their IT investments, the IT Governance Institute (ITGI) will host IT Value: Delivering on the Promise, a half-day forum on 22 June 2005, at the Radisson SAS Scandinavia Hotel in Oslo, Norway.
Moderated by Paul Williams, a past president of ISACA®, the forum will discuss ITGI’s The CEO’s Guide to IT Value @ Risk and answer the following questions:
Are the funds allocated to IT producing the expected return?
Is the IT investment helping the enterprise achieve its strategic and business objectives?
Are IT risks being adequately addressed and mitigated?
In addition, John Spangenberg, chairman and founder of SeaQuation, a division of ING for enterprise portfolio intelligence, will share the methods and metrics used by ING to measure IT value delivery. John Thorp, president of Thorp Network Inc. and principal researcher for Fujitsu and DMR, will discuss best practices for IT value delivery, benefit realization and program portfolio management.
Registration is complimentary for chief executive officers (CEOs), chief information officers (CIOs) and other executives accountable for delivering business value through IT.
