)-- Glomark-Governan Italia has confirmed the date for the Assintel and Glomark-Governan Italia event entitled, “Measuring the Economic Value of IT Investments: How to Manage Tough Investment Decisions Under Worldwide Economic Stress,” for Tuesday, May 19th, 2009 in Milan, Italy. For more information about this event, including how to register to attend, please visit the event website at http://www.assintel.it/eventi/752.jsp.
The pressure of the current economic environment has strained budgets and reduced IT expenses for many IT organizations—from specific Business Units to the Top Management; as well as technologies and services suppliers who are being asked to demonstrate and justify the real economic benefits and resultant return-on-investment of their solution(s).
A thorough evaluation of the economic value of an IT investment has often proved difficult for IT organizations, as common practice has led them only to consider the costs and derived savings of the solution rather than the economic value created from implementing or purchasing the solution.
Many companies have failed to properly assess the value of prospective investments because they do not have an internal, structured process to asses, evaluate, and communicate the economic value of projects and solutions. Using an Economic Value Creation approach, IT organizations can implement a process whereby Managers and Executives can develop business cases to measure, select, prioritize, analyze and control the economic results that can be achieved during the life cycle of the investment.
During this conference, presenters will illustrate a pragmatic and innovative approach to measure and analyze the economic value generated by IT investments, by identifying where and how both the business and IT organizations are affected by the potential investment.
Glomark-Governan helps enterprises around the world by providing them with the methodology, training, consulting, benchmarking research, and software tools necessary to assess, communicate and measure the economic value of investments in technology and services initiatives. Glomark-Governan has enhanced and refined its Economic Value Creation ( EVC™ ) Methodology for more than a decade, bringing to market a proven, complete solution that allows companies to justify their solutions’ value, define operational and performance metrics, assess economic risk, and quickly create project-specific business cases.
