WHAT: Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR) IT Forum 2007: Delivering Business Results Through IT Excellence

What must the IT, business, and vendor communities do to enable IT excellence? CIOs strive to operate IT as a business, using business metrics to market IT more effectively. But operational excellence alone does not suffice — IT must also steer the strategic technology investments that enable digital business, driving further business innovation. The combination is called IT excellence. At this Event, Forrester analysts will deliver research and demonstrate how every professional in the IT organization — from CIO, to enterprise architect, to application development professional, and down the line — contributes to IT excellence. Spotlight tracks will focus on the issues facing large IT organizations, the future of IT and leveraging enterprise mobility to increase business value.
