Gary Hardy, Director, IT Winners
Executives today are increasingly under pressure to manage IT risk and to transform the way business value can be generated from IT. IT has become pervasive in that it is part of every business activity and IT services are an integral part of an enterprise’s business processes. It is therefore more and more important for ITIL to be used from a business driven enterprise wide perspective. The presentation will explain the advantages to be gained from using COBIT and ITIL together to design and implement IT services based on enterprise requirements and priorities.
Gary is one of the originators of the COBIT framework and has been involved in all the COBIT developments for the past 19 years, including a lead developer of COBIT 5. For six years he was a leader of the Arthur Andersen Infrastructure Management team in London. He is currently the leader of the Deloitte South Africa IT Governance Centre of Excellence and Architect of the ITpreneurs COBIT and IT Governance Education portfolio. Gary is currently authoring the ITIL and COBIT Interface Guide for the OGC/TSO due to be published late 2012.
