IT Enterprise Management (ITEM)

The need to align IT service delivery with business objectives is driving IT Executives, management and staff to reconsider the IT service portfolio, architecture and resources and how well these combine to create strategic value and a competitive advantage.  Organizations are actively exploring new strategies for growth, including ways to improve service and foster innovation.  Additionally, there is a push by corporate and government stakeholders to increase transparency and cost controls, and centralize management and control of core business functions.  Implementing a comprehensive approach that includes consideration for the entire IT enterprise leads to critical insights into how to optimize governance and increase IT performance.

IT Enterprise Management (ITEM) is a strategy for maximizing value, reducing risk and increasing efficiency and effectiveness of the IT enterprise in providing services to the business and its customers.  The objective of ITEM is to transform the management of IT to a service-based model where investments are prioritized based on returns and strategic alignment with business priorities, and operational efficiencies are realized through process standardization, optimization and automation.
