ISG sponsors and presents at premier event devoted to managing the business of IT

Company Release - 11/2/2018 9:00 AM ET

STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, will play a prominent role in the 2018 Technology Business Management (TBM) Conference, November 5–8, at the Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas. In addition to exhibiting at the conference as a gold event sponsor and TBM Council Alliance Partner, ISG will present the firm's insights and experience in two sessions – one on TBM strategies for the finance function and the other on performance metrics for agile enterprises.

The TBM conference brings together top speakers and senior IT and finance leaders for a full week of informative sessions, offering attendees the opportunity to learn more about how to implement TBM, a widely adopted discipline aimed at managing the business of IT, as well as critical insights into how TBM can help enterprises operate with agility, manage hybrid environments and drive digital business transformation.

"We're pleased to again be participating in the TBM Conference, one of the year's most important events for expanding the dialogue on optimizing IT spending and continuing to deliver business value," said Todd Lavieri, ISG vice chairman and president, ISG Americas and Asia Pacific. "This year, we will put particular emphasis on adapting performance management to agile enterprises, and how TBM rounds out performance management initiatives by aligning stakeholders, reducing duplicated efforts and bringing higher visibility to IT spending and its impact on the business."

On Monday, November 5, at 9:30 a.m., Bryan Mueller, ISG's TBM practice lead, and Korey Barnard, director of the IT finance practice of ISG, will co-chair the CFO of IT workgroup session. Mueller and Barnard, along with Todd Tucker, vice president of standards, research and education for the TBM Council, will lead a panel discussion on the CFO of IT Competency Model, exploring its five essential roles: Technology Controller, Cost Optimizer, Investment Manager, Agent of Change and Voice of the Business. "We will examine how senior leaders can advance TBM disciplines and standards across the finance profession to understand the true cost – and leverage the full value – of IT to their organization," Mueller said.

Kathy Rudy, partner, ISG Data & Analytics, and Mueller will present "Performance Metrics for the Agile Enterprise" on Tuesday, November 6, at 10:40 a.m., looking at the challenges and limits of traditional performance metrics in measuring the agile enterprise and how attendees can shift the focus toward metrics that are market-comparable and drive ongoing success. "The purpose and the benefit of TBM is that it enables an enterprise to run IT as a business, and every successful business needs meaningful performance metrics," Rudy said. "Traditional performance metrics typically focus on individual systems and stability over agility, which is no match for today's environments, which aim to remove the barriers between IT development projects and maintenance, and utilize end-to-end measurements."

Through its TBM practice, ISG brings together industry-leading data, operational insights and strategic consulting expertise to help clients better understand the business value of IT spending, make better and more strategic investment decisions, and close the gap that often exists between IT and the business.

The TBM Conference is hosted by the TBM Council, a non-profit organization dedicated to developing and promoting best practices for managing the business of IT. As a global thought leader in TBM, ISG runs multiple workgroups within the TBM Council, is a member of the TBM Council's Standards Committee, and is active in defining the next evolution of the TBM taxonomy. More details about this year's event can be found on the event website.
