Project management media entity PMForum to provide news coverage for the Gartner PPM & IT Governance Summit in Orlando, Florida scheduled for 7-9 June 2010
May 11, 2010 - PRLog -- Dallas, Texas, USA — PMForum announced today that it has been named a “Media Partner” for the Gartner PPM & IT Governance Summit 2010 in June.  The Gartner PPM & IT Governance Summit will be held during 7-9 June 2010 at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Hotel in Orlando, Florida, USA.  This major event for IT project managers and executives will feature plenary sessions with major figures as keynote speakers, track sessions featuring industry experts, best practice workshops, Gartner analyst round table discussions, and opportunities for one-on-one sessions with Gartner analysts.  For information, visit the conference website.

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", and identify and satisfy PPM capabilities that can power growth and innovation again, without being a return to pre-recession "business-as-usual".

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.  For information or to register, visit the conference website.
