According to PMForum Managing Editor David Pells, “Every IT organization in America follows and respects Gartner research, especially related to project portfolio management. The Gartner PPM & IT Governance Summit 2010 will be one of this year’s biggest events for IT organizations and executives that have PPM and PMO issues. We are happy to support this important conference.”
For many organizations, 2009 challenges drove important changes in how to decide and manage IT investments and initiatives, accelerating the trend toward greater accountability, effectiveness, agility and transparency. In the area of Program, Portfolio Management (PPM) and IT Governance, enterprises focused on PPM survival, making tough priority choices, cost savings and near term value. In 2010, financial and cost management will remain a key priority, but enterprises need to position themselves for substantial recovery, build upon an established PPM "foundation"
Gartner predicts that during the next 18 months, PMOs that are not directly accountable for projects, programs or portfolios will be radically restructured or disbanded. Finding a PPM path forward that "fits" the new post-recession economy, and the realities of each organization is what the Gartner PPM & IT Governance Summit is all about. It is a "must attend" event for both IT and Business Leaders - to equip them with practices, strategies, and action plans, necessary for PPM and IT Governance success.
