Information is driving change in today’s enterprise. Learn how to govern and manage your enterprise information effectively.
Does your IT connect to your business issues?
How do you know you are getting value from your IT investment?
Measuring the value of an investment is not just about calculating ROI. It involves reducing costs, establishing visibility and control across your IT infrastructure, increasing accuracy of information and managing an increasing array of IT-related risks. IT-enabled investments can bring reward, but only with the right governance and management processes, and full engagement from all levels of management within business and IT.
Major IT initiatives often fail due to inadequate management direction, support and oversight. New business or technology strategies and implementations are no different; they have more chance of success if they are well governed and well managed. Inadequate support and direction from key stakeholders can, for example, result in business initiatives producing new policies and procedures that have no proper ownership.
Process improvements are unlikely to become normal business practices without a management structure that assigns roles and responsibilities, commits to their continued operation, and monitors conformance. The use of a business framework enables INNOVATION to be applied in a value-adding, risk-balanced, resource-effective way linking to stakeholder needs.
