Event on 2014-01-23 01:00:00

Moving from a Traditional IT department to a Service-oriented IT department requires a paradigm shift. It means evolving beyond an outdated management style to embrace a new and innovative approach. Technology has advanced remarkably in the past few years; it is time that IT management to rethink its role within the business. This involves creating financial transparency and aligning IT spend and budgets to business goals and outcomes. Why should you attend : 

Information Technology costs are often seen as a huge black hole that has no bottom. The CEO and CFO are always wondering how all the money is being spent and exactly how IT is serving the business. The CIO finds it difficult to explain his or her decisions because of a lack of hard financial numbers and resorts to using vague generalities or, even worse, highly technical terms to defend his actions. If you can identify with this scenario, then you might be managing an IT department using the outdated and obsolete Traditional IT Management process.

In this seminar – Running Your IT Department Like a Business – we will focus on transforming a Traditional IT department by learning how financial transparency coupled with a Service-Oriented Management approach builds trust with the CEO and CFO and enables IT to contribute to the bottom line results of the business.
