IT Requires Executive Oversight

With good reason:

An apparel manufacturing companys difficulties in installing


supply chain software cost it an estimated US $200 million

A publicly traded company admitted that a virtual collapse of its


financial reporting system reduced its market value by one-third
in a single day

An operational meltdown after the merger of two transportation


companies was traced to the inability to coordinate their IT
systems

Oversight Can Lead to Value Creation

IT can provide significant benefits, too:


A major airlines supply chain transformation improved the
forecast of demand, reduced procurement costs and increased
service levels while costs fell

A technology products and services company saved US $12


billion over two years by linking up disparate pieces of its supply
chain, thereby reducing inventory levels

IT Governance Is the Key Issue
Enterprises are sacrificing
money, productivity and
competitive advantage by
not
implementing effective IT
governance

Executives need a better


way to:
Direct IT for optimal
advantage
Measure the value provided
by IT
Manage IT-related risks
