Program management Office (PMO)

The pace of technology will never be as slow as it is today

The evolution of technology has forever changed the way we look at IT organizations. Once upon a time an IT department resided within an organization to design, manage and control infrastructure costs and provide backend solutions to meet the needs of the business. With the evolution of cloud applications that support the businesses and backend infrastructure requirements, the role of IT has dramatically evolved and the need for an infrastructure-based IT organization has diminished. 

Why do most companies struggle to develop their technology roadmap?

Lack of a clear vision

  • What does each functional area need to be successful?
  • What are our common goals and objectives?

Gaps in Organizational Structure and Skills

  • Focused entirely on near term operations
  • Lacking key roles to provide dedication to strategic planning for long term objectives

Poor End to End Governance and Process Definition

  • Short on key management tools to drive “portable” methodology for IT end-to-end process integration
  • Need for process definition around rules of engagement and gate points

Inadequate Performance Measurement and KPIs

  • Poor supplier performance measurements
  • SLAs driving accountability and cost impacts
