Global CIO Value Forum: Best Practices for Measuring IT Value and Portfolio Management

Dublin, Ohio, July 8, 2008.  Glomark-Governan has confirmed the date of the first Global CIO Value Forum, an event designed to present best practices for measuring IT value and IT portfolio management, for Thursday, October 2nd, 2008 in Columbus, Ohio.  This Global CIO Value Forum will be the first of five forums, with locations in Columbus, Ohio, Mexico City, Mexico, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Madrid, Spain, and Milan, Italy. 

The forums, for senior IT managers and CIOs, will present best practices for effectively identifying, assessing, and measuring the economic value of technology investments, a crucial element of their IT portfolio management practice.  Mitigating the risks associated with large investments requires an objective, transparent evaluation of the project benefits and costs, versus the apparent and inherent risks.  Managing the technology selection process within an innovative, fast paced industry introduces challenges for any IT department.  As a result, the desire to quickly assess investments, while thoroughly evaluating the impact on your company’s bottom line, is often blurred by unstructured processes and a lack of internal standardization. 

Glomark-Governan will speak directly to this paradigm by presenting best practices for adopting a standardized process, which enables IT organizations to consistently and objectively forecast and measure IT value. 

Glomark-Governan helps enterprises around the world by providing them with the methodology, training, consulting, benchmarking research, and software tools necessary to assess, communicate and measure the economic value of investments in technology and services initiatives. Glomark-Governan has enhanced and refined its Economic Value Creation ( EVC™ ) Methodology for more than a decade, bringing to market a proven, complete solution that allows companies to justify their solutions’ value, define operational and performance metrics, assess economic risk, and quickly create project-specific business cases.
