Dublin, OH, July 26, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Glomark-Governan has confirmed the location of the first Global CIO Value Forum, an event designed to present best practices for measuring IT value and IT portfolio management, at the Columbus Hilton at Easton on October 2nd, 2008 in Columbus, Ohio. This Global CIO Value Forum will be the first of five forums, with locations in Columbus, Ohio, Mexico City, Mexico, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Madrid, Spain, and Milan, Italy.
For CIOs, COOs, and IT executives, effectively identifying, assessing, and measuring the economic value of technology investments is a crucial element of their IT portfolio management practice. Mitigating the risks associated with large investments requires an objective, transparent evaluation of the project benefits and costs, versus the apparent and inherent risks.
Glomark-Governan, in collaboration with the confirmed panelists, will speak directly to this paradigm by presenting best practices for adopting a standardized process, which enables IT organizations to consistently and objectively forecast and measure IT value.
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.
