This prestigious award recognizes leaders and pioneers who have contributed to their organization’s success and championed improvements across their people, processes, information and technology.
Ventana Research has awarded Diane McGreevy at International Game Technology (IGT) using Moovila its prestigious 2021 Digital Leadership Award in Digital Business. This award recognizes the individual, organization and technology that best exemplifies leadership in the technologies that support any or all of the following areas: business continuity, digital communications, digital security, digital transformation, experience management, governance and risk, performance management and sustainability management. All award finalists in digital business were considered for this prestigious award.
Organizations need the agility and readiness to support continuous operations. Through effective strategy and plan that uses processes and workflow with technology to guide business, organizations must have the confidence and trust to support operational priorities and desired results. Embrace the organizational requirement to ensure digital transformation can provide the business continuity, experience management, governance and risk, performance management, sustainability management and work management that is supported with digital communications and digital security for enabling organizational resilience.
Ventana Research selected IGT for the 14th Annual Digital Leadership Award in Digital Business for its ability to manage projects to successful outcomes. IGT delivers entertaining and responsible gaming experiences for players across all channels and regulated segments, from Gaming Machines and Lotteries to Sports Betting and digital. Leveraging a wealth of content, innovation, player insights, operational expertise and leading-edge technology, IGT delivers unrivaled gaming experiences that engage players and drive growth. Building on innovation and operational expertise, IGT’s initiative was to develop a process that enables people who are not trained project managers (PM) to plan, track and execute projects repeatedly and successfully — on time and on budget.
IGT’s vision and leadership around people, processes and technology, is essential to those three critical components of an organization to work together to achieve results. IGT's stated goals for implementing the Moovila platform are to help navigate projects, identify and prevent roadblocks from saving money, and avoid project delays. IGT sought a tool to instantly and automatically deliver accurate answers to their critical business questions around capacity, delivery dates, and revenue projections. Moovila connects people and works on its AI-powered work management platform to eliminate risk and speed up execution. With Moovila, IGT manages workflows and integrates real-life capacity and schedules of the people and resources to deliver the work through its critical path engine.
Moovila was developed with Intelligent Project Control to automate the accuracy of work and deliver higher intelligence to work management. The project aims to contribute to the effectiveness of People and Transformation by increasing the efficiency and quality of how resources and work are managed internally, and subsequently increase delivery and execution. Project managers and leaders have different ways of communicating, using project data instead of the gut feeling on project status, and this is an area where IGT benefited the most from the technology. Managers operate with precise work status and workload for their team members, and team members have more effective ways to coordinate and collaborate; they can electronically surface roadblocks to their managers and have data-driven conversations about quality of work and workload balance. IGT succeeded at turning People and Transformation into an integrated leadership team with command of a portfolio of strategic projects that makes significant enhancements to its execution capabilities.
Digital Business is a software category in need of innovation and optimization. Moovila addresses the challenges of managing individual and portfolios of programs. Organizations with the need to manage its operations more effectively will appreciate the ability to ensure placing more intelligence and engagement for what we refer to as work management.
Organizations looking to maximize the value of its business and technology investments across its people and processes should consider how being a more effective Digital Business can optimize its digital potential. If you have not examined how Moovila can help your organization, it is well worth your time. Congratulations, Diane McGreevy at International Game Technology, for your leadership.
