IBM Rational Software Conference 2009: Process, Project and Portfolio Management Track Keynote


Published on

Track Keynote for the Process, Project and Portfolio Management Track at the IBM Rational Software Conference 2009

Software and systems delivery has become a fundamental business process in the global economy, and the ability to adapt to changing market conditions requires that information technology is fully integrated into the business strategy and operations to ensure consistent alignment with business priorities, and better execution.

Executives require visibility and real-time decision support to keep the enterprise focused on solutions to high-priority problems, supported by the ability to measure the performance of current and future IT activities and assets. IT leaders must deliver significant business value and ensure constant alignment of project investments with evolving business objectives. Project leaders must be able to identify, implement and drive adoption of repeatable best-practice approaches for successful execution, and be able to more proactively identify and resolve issues, to reduce risks associated with project failure. All stakeholders must be involved and informed in addressing the changing business needs, especially when variations in project health threaten outcomes.

This track explores topics across several domains that support organizational change and iterative software and systems delivery. Hear and learn from actual experiences across the spectrum of process adoption, portfolio planning and oversight, and execution of major initiatives, programs, and projects. This track is for executives, IT leaders, program managers, project managers, portfolio managers, process engineers, business analysts, and other stakeholders concerned with optimizing IT investments with industry best practices and team unifying tools for more predictability, adaptability, and visibility.
