With the advent of digital transformation, applications, data in the cloud, and the Internet of Things (IoT), many PPM capabilities, skills and standard practices are already being rendered obsolete. Concern about this obsolescence on the part of PPM leaders is not enough. They will not find a broad highway to the future. Pioneers and trailblazers will be needed. If they are to survive, PPM leaders must take up their axes and set off into the trackless wilderness of the new digital age, partnering with others. Innovative thought, experimentation and best practices that move beyond the comfy certainties of one-size-fits-all are what's needed. Mon, 06 Jun 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3306917 Gartner Webinars Spend More Where IT Matters Most: How to Reduce IT Costs EDT: 9:00 a.m. & 12:00 p.m. | PDT: 6:00 a.m. & 9:00 a.m. | GMT: 13:00 & 16:00 IT leaders are being asked to more strongly support initiatives such as digital business but with little or no increase to their budgets. This quandary can be resolved if "keeping the lights on" or "run" costs can be significantly reduced so that more funds can be shifted toward initiatives to grow and transform the enterprise. Given that about 55% of the IT budget is comprised of infrastructure and operations (I&O) expenses and about 80% of I&O costs are "run" - your focus should be on reducing what is spent on I&O.

The rest mentions no business outcomes at all, or list qualitative goals such as "better decision making"- "more agility" or "coming to the one version of the truth", not the best way to justify your position as a chief data officer, or data and analytics leader. As information becomes a recognized business asset and as digital business models are based on the creation and exchange of data in a smart way, we can and must come to more tangible metrics.

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3305319 Gartner Webinars Helping Midmarket IT Leaders Change the Conversation From Cost to Value EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 Many midmarket IT leaders report that they are often required to reduce IT spending. With CFOs measuring IT against a single metric - "IT spending as a % of revenue," - there is a heavy focus on reducing IT's costs with little focus on increasing its contribution to the business. This has led to many midmarket IT leaders being unable to move the conversation from cost to value. The result is usually the business failing to innovate from within and utilising IT to optimise business performance. In this webinar we introduce the Gartner Cost Value Matrix as a new way to measure IT's contribution to the business. The Cost Value Matrix focuses on how IT has contributed to improving business metrics, rather than its record on cost cutting, a much improved and fairer way of assessing a CIO's performance.

EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 One of the most pressing decisions facing midmarket IT leaders is whether they need to build a data warehouse. Midsize organizations have heard the horror stories about how hard and costly it can be to build a data warehouse. And then there is no guarantee it will be successfully adopted by users.
