The focal point for technology to support digital business is to ensure the effective management and operation of an organization. Managing an organization’s portfolio of projects, resources and assets to deliver expected outcomes is no easy task. The interlinking of business and technology presents opportunities for organizations to innovate and deliver the efficiency and expected improvements that are part of the overall strategy. The goal is not just transformation, but establishing the resilience and effectiveness required for success. The intersection of work and performance management emphasizes a strategic view of portfolios, raising the stakes for business and IT leadership to work collaboratively to gain the greatest return on time and investment.
Ventana Research selected ServiceNow’s Strategic Portfolio Management platform for the 15th Annual Digital Innovation Award in Digital Business for its support of the effective use of technology in the management of projects, innovation, demand, resource, roadmap, scenarios and performance.
