As the White House and Congressional leaders discuss options to address the debt, we’ll continue to share our experience in using modern management, technology and resources to address the debt.
Last week, Debra Cammer-Hines, our Vice President and Partner responsible for Strategy and Transformation Consulting, testified before Congress to share our recommendations to save funding and improve performance – the same recommendations that have been presented in this blog. As the White House and Congressional leaders discuss options to address the debt, we’ll continue to share our experience in using modern management, technology and resources to address the debt.
This week, Ravi Bansal, an IBM project executive and strategist on cloud computing and smarter government initiatives, shared his views on the 5E Framework for IT Consolidation: expenditure effectiveness, efficiency, exposure and execution. In addition to Ravi’s point about the goal of IT overall to support the mission, his approach helps CIOs and technology leaders focus their time and energy on what really matters: supporting the goals of the mission. This approach aligns with the PBSA framework for Federal IT.
In his second post, Ravi shared more depth about the first E: expenditure that shares a framework for measuring ROI on IT investments. I encourage you to reach out to Ravi or to me if you’d like to discuss this for your organization or a particular investment. Since expenditure overall is both a part of the process and a key outcome in IT consolidation, I know this “E” will generate interest.
