SEMINAR: Communicating The Value Of IT Back To The Business: Effective IT Financial Management – Torrance, Feb 2nd

SCSIM Winter IT Executive Forum
Communicating The Value Of IT Back To The Business:
Effective IT Financial Management

  • Have you ever been asked why IT costs so much?
  • Do you struggle to justify project costs when budget time hits?
  • If so, this is the event for you!

Whether you call it “IT cost transparency”, “showing value for the dollars spent in IT”, “IT Service Management”, “Technology Business Management” or “transforming CIO’s from Technical to Business leaders”, the message is the same – we need to demonstrate, in the language of the business, the value of their investment in technology.

During this forum, we will share several ways to enhance credibility for the IT organization by employing financial transparency. You will empower your decision-making capabilities by understanding the underlying costs and value of delivering IT services to the business.

You will meet three renowned IT Executives who have successfully built dashboards and analytics to show value. You’ll hear from Charlie NcNerney, GM for Microsoft Global Foundation Services on Delivering Business Value of IT. Sean Worthington, VP Information Technology, Cisco Systems will talk about Transforming IT into a Services Portfolio. Jeff Chasney, EVP and CIO of CKE Restaurants will share his thoughts on Putting the Intelligence in Business Intelligence. Then, join in a roundtable discussion on how to get started, facilitated by Larry Godec, SVP/CIO for First American Financial.

Bring your CFO at half price! Sharing this event will help strengthen your relationship by developing a mutual understanding of the costs and value of technology efforts.
