BOSTON, April 12, 2016 – Business transformation expert Dan Caron from MEGA International will speak to CIOs at the CIO Summit in Denver April 18-20, about using IT portfolio management strategies as a way to drive innovation and transformation.
“Pioneering companies across all industries are finding that when they eliminate dying technology, bloated IT portfolios and unnecessary legacy systems, they are fueling innovation and gaining market share,” explained Caron. “The transformation of the IT portfolio contributes directly to business transformation and improved corporate results.”
One of the innovative methods in IT portfolio management is the use of crowdsourcing, which combines the efforts of large numbers of people in the organization in the collection, attestation and management of data. This validated, real-time information is used to help modernize the IT infrastructure.
Another concept that Caron will discuss is funding capability evolution rather than funding projects. Focusing exclusively on projects may be a short-sighted approach that doesn’t evolve the capabilities of the organization.
CIOs are eager for solutions that help them understand and transform their businesses.
