Understanding where and how we are spending our resources and getting return on our investments is difficult - especially for software development organizations...
Many software companies manage a significant portfolio of solutions where there is a:
Disconnect between business and delivery with a lack of delivery governance and control
Risks and issues are handled to late in the delivery process instead of up front
Software and systems delivery and portfolio data on disparate and globally distributed data sources – without relationships
Lack of integrated reporting and decision making based on all portfolio, development and delivery layers
As a software leader, are you prepared to answer these questions for your organization?
As an organization, how do you determine if the investments you are making today are helping or hurting your portfolio?
Where should you invest and divest as you plan for your next release cycle?
How does your knowledge of the markets you are targeting with your software products prepare you for your investment decisions?
IBM Rational can help your organization collect, analyze and report on the information required. By using IBM Rational Insight and IBM Rational Focal Point, you have the ability to proactively analyze your portfolio, manage the skills of the organization and view real-time development progress. These skills are no longer optional, but mandatory components of the economic portfolio insights required to maintain competitive leadership.
So are you, as a software leader, prepared to answer the questions or do you as so many other organizations have a disconnect between business and delivery?
