How do I get the most value out of my technology investments?

Download to read offline

Manu Tandon and I recently made a presentation at the Asset Managers Forum ( a part of SIFMA) in NYC. This is the abstract of the presentation. We introduced 4 core concepts that will empower businesses to have more structured and value oriented conversation with IT.

Abstract:

Today technology is a critical part of not only surviving in this industry but essential for growth and seizing on global opportunities. We find organizations struggling to make the most of their technology investment because the relationships between “business and IT” are frayed or non existent. Given that, how do SIFMA AMF members make the most of their technology investments?

This talk will give the audience specific pointers that will enable them to have a constructive dialog with their technology organizations. It will also equip them with know-how to influence their technology counterparts and align their behaviors to meet business needs.

We will define and understand the usage of
-Strategic IT vs. Utility IT
-Time to Market
-Value vs. Waste
-Roadmap planning
