Michael Harris, author and speaker on the Value Visualization of IT and related topics, and President and CEO of David Consulting Group, will present at the IEEE Software Technology Conference taking place October 12-15, 2015 in Long Beach, California.
Mr. Harris will present his “Value Visualization Framework” concept on October 14 at 10:00 a.m. PST. He will discuss how providing IT with the economic data for software development initiatives can lead to improved decision making and ultimately impact an organization’s bottom line. Mr. Harris’ 5-step Value Visualization Framework (VVF) promotes collaboration between the business units and IT in order to prioritize projects based on their value. Mr. Harris will share his framework and offer guidance on how it can be used in conjunction with many of the popular development methodologies in use today, such as Agile.
“When IT functions in a silo, its ability to impact the overall organization in a meaningful way is limited, at best,” said Mr. Harris. “It is imperative that IT work closely with the business in order to prioritize its work based on assigned value. With the value information directly from the business, IT can then produce work that will foster the greatest business and economic benefits, providing increased profitability and an improved competitive advantage.”
The IEEE Software Technology Conference is a leading software conference that provides a forum for software practitioners to share their experiences with the goal of improving the execution of software across the industry. The focus of this year’s event is “Meeting Real World Opportunities and Challenges through Software and Systems Technology.”
