Monrovia, CA (Vocus) February 3, 2009
Monrovia, CA -- Parasoft Corporation, leading provider of automated solutions and infrastructure services that improve software quality and the development process, today announced the availability of "The Next Leap In Productivity: What Top Managers Really Need to Know About Information Technology" (Wiley, 2009), by Adam Kolawa, Ph.D.
In the new book, Parasoft CEO Kolawa explains how companies can to survive in today's economy by making IT more productive. The improvements achieved in IT productivity can then be leveraged into improved productivity at the enterprise level and dramatic reductions in operating costs.
"Adam Kolawa's insight and charm really come through in this book. Let's face it…on Wall Street; you can't compete without great IT," says Michael Cangialosi, Director, Barclays Capital. "Based on my own 20 years of IT experience on Wall Street, I can say that this book brings into sharp focus many of the key issues we face--doing more with less, resistance to change, governance of scarce resources, and regulation. However, even more importantly, this book provides non-geeks a roadmap about how IT works and how IT needs to be managed. I whole-heartedly agree with Adam Kolawa's point that an 'enterprise leap in productivity' is at hand. I truly believe that the firms which take this book's concepts to heart will leave the others in the dust."
Kolawa's productivity-boosting strategies address the challenges faced across today's economy. For example
- Organizations dealing with layoffs will learn how to do more with less in order to keep operations going.
- Financial institutions will learn strategies for merging infrastructures efficiently.
- Manufacturers will learn how streamlining software development activities is essential for remaining competitive.
- Organizations that require PCI DSS and FDA compliance will learn how to achieve compliance as efficiently as possible.
