IT Governance: Policies and Processes
Time 04/25/17 04:30PM-05:30PM
Room Mount Vernon A
The value of information technology results in part from effective IT governance – the organization’s allocation of IT decision rights and accountability. As such, IT governance is a set of policies and associated processes that defines WHAT decisions must be made, WHO should make the decisions, and HOW the decisions will be made and monitored. In this presentation, we will discuss how Tulane University’s Technology Services is leading the effort to define an IT governance policy and build a set of processes that support decision-making from request to budgetary approval.
Attendees will discover how to improve results by managing request intake and assessment, explore how IT governance helps align resources and business strategy, and see how Tulane developed a tool to facilitate moving requests through the evaluation and approval process as well as to give management insight into the institutional value and risk of requests.
