3:00pm-4:00pm: Driving Out Business Value by Managing to Outcomes

 

 

 

One of the toughest issues in any IT project is defining the Minimum Viable Product (MVP). The task is even more difficult when a firm commits to a Digital Transformation Project. Join us to learn how your teams can drive out business value by defining MVP and doing a phased approach. Witness how companies across multiple industries have derived immediate business value through the management of outcomes and the adoption of a phased approach, which provides consistent feedback from users. This major approach achieves quick adoption as a result of iterative processes put in place. Tune in as we demonstrate the importance in defining MVP for your digital transformation.

 

 


4:00pm-5:00pm: IT Investment ROI: Finding the Balance between Cost Cutting & Proactive Investments (panel discussion)

 

Panelists will include C-Level executives sharing experiences and lessons learned

 

Many IT Executives are stuck in cost-cutting cycles tied only to expense-line trimming rather than business investments and outcomes. This approach limits the business growth since organizations do not fully exploit the use of IT. In this session, attendees will learn strategies for finding the right balance to move the organization forward.
