The worst thing that can be done in IT is investing in “panic mode”. That typically happens when Information Security incidents happen. The second worst thing is having investments driven by specialists that are focused on a particular problem or system. That happens without well thought-out IT planning. The third worst thing is investing in the wrong technology because the business problem wasn’t understood. In this session, Prof. Dr. Sachar Paulus will share his knowledge on how to set up a strategic IT planning model in your IT organization. He will talk about foundations, controls, and processes for Strategic IT Planning.
This panel is about discussing how to translate business wording such as technical resource names – “EX12FIN” – into business language: “Expense System for non-managers”. Many IAM/IAG projects struggle with doing that translation. The panelists will discuss
- the need for mapping IT wording and business language
- where to do it
- who has to do it
- how to do it efficiently
Bridging that gap means setting up an IAM/IAG organization that spans business and IT people. Thus, we expect the discussion not only being about the translation between business and IT, but talking about the organizational structure and prerequisites on both sides for this key success factor of any IAM/IAG project.
