Office of the CIO (OCIO).
IT units currently operate in a more demanding environment than ever being required to present benefits for the business, ensure that their actions are targeted according to organizational strategy and follow a cost/benefit guided financial management concept.
IT units face an endless stream of demands from the various business units – changes for existing systems, demands for new developments, development of new systems etc. In addition, various regulations requiring stricter monitoring and control of IT activity (such as SOX)
have entered into force.
An effective project management system, which operates in such a changing environment, is required to answer the following questions:

  1. Who initiated the requirement and what is the requirement’s significance in a cost-benefit analysis?
  2. How are the IT resources distributed and on what they focus at every given moment?
  3. Which projects and tasks are in process and which are expected to be received?
  4. How to prioritize various requirements and projects and based on which criteria?
  5. How to effectively manage IT resources and which risks are involved?
  6. How to coordinate and integrate actions and infrastructures?
