Gartner Announces PPM & IT Governance Summit 2010

June 7-9 at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, Orlando, Florida

What: Gartner PPM & IT Governance Summit

When: June 7-9, 2010

Where: Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, Orlando, Florida

Details: For many organizations, 2009 was about survival, making tough priority choices, cost savings and near term value. In 2010, financial and cost management will remain a key priority, but enterprises are now trying to find the right path for substantial recovery. Organizations need to establish a solid PPM “foundation”, and identify PPM needs and capabilities that can power growth and innovation again. For many, IT governance over demand, resources, and investments is – at best – “broken”.  Agile and effective IT governance is the engine that will power new IT assets, initiatives, and revenue.

The Gartner PPM & IT Governance Summit will show how to justify PPM and IT governance, determine the best approaches and tools for PPM and IT governance efforts, prioritize project and applications portfolios, improve the value of PMOs, better manage business expectations, and evolve your PPM practices and maturity.

*IT-Business Engagement: So Much More Than Alignment:Jeanne W. Ross, Director and Principal Research Scientist, Center for Information Systems Research (CISR)
