Survey Results Hint At Big Challenges for IT Transformation

A big thanks to all the attendees of the IT Portfolio Management Conference in Chicago who stopped by the UMT360 booth. The event was a fantastic opportunity to connect with IT leaders looking to transform how they manage enterprise IT investments.

Many of the folks who stopped by the UMT360 booth participated in our 2014 IT assessment survey.

Having just returned from Gartner’s PPM & IT Governance Summit in Maryland, I’ve been reflecting on the many great discussions our team had regarding Digitalized IT and UMT360’s approach to Enterprise Portfolio Management (EPM).  Because we have long promoted the tenets of integration, transparency and digitalization as key to successful business investment management, it’s rewarding to see so many organizations today adopting the discipline of EPM to propel their businesses forward.

Digitalization was a strong theme at the Summit this year and we were interested in just how far along business are in digitalizing their IT.  We surveyed nearly 100 attendees who visited the UMT360 booth.  Visitors were asked to characterize their maturity in the four key areas.  They could indicate fully, mostly, little or none.
