Mike Harris, President and CEO of David Consulting Group (http://www.davidconsultinggroup.com), a global provider of software analytics, software quality management and Agile development solutions, will present at the IT Financial Management Association’s (ITFMA) Financial World of IT Conference, with a focus on making software development decisions based on economic data.

On Friday, April 17th at 10:30am EST Mr. Harris will present, "Using Lean Principles to Prioritize and Track Financial Value in Software Development,” part of the "IT Chargeback, Showback and Expense Management" conference agenda. He will share simple techniques for optimizing the flow of economic value and bringing economic value metrics into the tactical decision-making of the software development process.

“When software development decisions are not made based on business and economic value, IT often finds itself operating in a silo – hindering its ability to produce a measurable impact on the company’s bottom line,” said Mr. Harris. “Successfully implementing a framework to measure and track the value of software development initiatives will ultimately lead to significant cost savings for the organization and greater strategic alignment of the business and IT.”

The ITFMA Conference will be held April 13-17 in Pittsburgh. It is a must-attend event for those interested in improving their IT financial management capabilities. The conference schedule covers four themes in both presentations and workshops:

  • IT Financial Management Best Practices
  • IT Chargeback, Cost Transparency and Expense Management
  • IT Financial Management Practitioner Experiences and Case Studies
  • Government IT Financial Management
