The Presentation Encourages CIOs to Implement Strategic Best Practices that Drive the Value of Software Development Initiatives

It’s appalling that so few organizations have implemented the necessary steps to demonstrate their value directly to the business in terms that they can understand and openly discuss.

Michael D. Harris, author and speaker on topics related to the business value of software development, and President and CEO of DCG Software Value, a global provider of software analytics, software quality management and Agile support services, will present at the CIO Forum being held May 15-17, 2016 in Miami.

Mr. Harris’ presentation, “Portfolio Software Value Management,” will share actionable steps for maximizing the flow of business value from software. He will also share insights from his forthcoming book, “The Business Value of Software” (publication date 2017), focusing on the best practices for deriving value from software development initiatives.

“Industry trends suggest that IT management is increasingly being held accountable for the value of IT initiatives, and yet little effort is made to actually measure, track and optimize the value of software development in any meaningful way,” said Mr. Harris. “It’s appalling that so few organizations have implemented the necessary steps to demonstrate their value directly to the business in terms that they can understand and openly discuss. My presentation offers suggestions for how organizations can move forward down this path.”
