Determining the ROI and Economic Value of IT Investments Forum

Columbus, OH, June 21, 2008 --( Glomark-Governan, the leading provider of business case solutions for sales, marketing, product development and IT organizations, has announced its plan to present best practices for determining the ROI and Economic Value of IT Investments at the TechColumbus IT Forum in Columbus, Ohio on July 24th, 2008.

For IT managers and CIOs, effectively identifying, assessing, and measuring the economic value of technology investments is a crucial element of their portfolio management processes. Managing the technology selection process within an innovative, fast paced industry introduces challenges for any IT department. Balancing the desire to quickly assess investments, while thoroughly evaluating the impact on your company’s bottom line, is often blurred by unstructured processes and a lack of internal standardization.

In this presentation, Glomark-Governan will speak directly to this paradigm by presenting best practices for adopting a standardized technology selection process, which enables IT buyers to consistently and objectively assess innovative technologies. Topics will include how local IT organizations, as well as international IT departments across several industries, approach the technology selection process; specifically examining the recognized best practices utilized by some of the most efficient and respected IT buyers in the world.

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.
