    • How well aligned is your application portfolio to your business stakeholders? The growth of cloud-based solutions requires IT to keep pace and stay relevant with the business to ensure alignment with their strategies, goals & objectives. Instead of IT’s self-serving drive to simplify application landscapes, there is now a much greater acceptance of complexity, and that requires a new approach to making the right portfolio decisions. Being able to react to changes in business climates and make the right decisions is paramount to building business alignment. Arbitrary across-the-board dogma will no longer work with this new generation of tech-savvy business users. This whitepaper and webcast focuses on how IT leaders should be inseparable from the business when aligning and setting priorities within the Application Portfolio, and should be enablers, rather than controllers.

      Learn how business stakeholders should be engaged in application value assessments and be given complete transparency to current/forecasted expenditures and usage patterns. Learn, also, how progressive organizations have implemented governance models that foster independence, innovation & agility without the downside of overlap, runaway costs and anarchy.

      This event qualifies for 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU credit).
