Announcement and Programme - IDA-IT Conference, 1st Oct. 2012 How to get control of IT Projects and Systems? ‘Reflecting on and Advancing the State of Practice, because we depend on IT.’ Introduction On Monday October 1st, the Danish Society of Engineers IDA hosts a full day, international conference on IT Management and IT Governance. The topic of IT Management/Governance and ‘Getting in control of IT’ has gained a growing interest over the past few years. Failed IT projects and failing IT systems are in the news on a regular basis, both public and private organisations are hurt significantly and their senior management seems to be lacking control. IDA-IT organises an international conference to explore various aspects of the problem with the industry’s decision makers, and discuss how these problems can be met. Topics • IT Governance and programme management • Application portfolio management • Sourcing and vendor management Target Audience CxOs, IT Program managers, Application portfolio holders, Contract managers and Business managers that want to get a grip on IT, without getting into technical details.

Nørgaard, Vice-Chairman, Digitaliseringsstyrelsen Birgit W. Nørgaard, Vice-Chairman of the State's IT Project Council, will explain some of the causes for failure of public IT projects and elaborate on the actions taken by the Danish Agency for Digitalisation in order to address the problems, and work toward an improved IT governance in the public sector. 9:45 - 10:30 IT Governance and Programme Management Mr. Kristian Vengsgaard, Projektdirektør, SKAT IT Governance and Programme management within a large public organisation often requires a fine balance and putting many different challenges in perspective. What approach did SKAT take and how helpful has it been? 10:30 - 11:00 Coffee break 11:00 - 11:45 Agile Contracts Mr. Jesper Thaning, Agile practitioner and management consultant, BestBrains 11:45 - 12:45 Lunch break 12:45 - 13:30 Why capability and maturity makes a difference Mr. Diego Børresen Lladó, Partner, IT Management Consultant, Proces360.dk Steering groups that govern large IT development projects base themselves on reports about concepts like 'work breakdown completion'. How trustworthy are these insights when the development process itself is not mature? The Capability Maturity Model (CMMI) provides excellent handles for defining and growing maturity. This introduction discuss the questions that tell you as a steering group member whether you can trust these progress reports. 13:30 - 14:15 Speaker from Software Improvement Group To be announced shortly 14:15 - 15:00 Discussion and networking 15:00 - 15:45 Marketing quality of software Mr. Andrew de la Haye, COO, Ripe NCC C-level executives and project managers often see the quality of software as a cost driver and a nuisance. At the RIPE NCC, a company vital to the functioning of the internet, explicit drive to high quality software helped reducing the cost base of development and created a unique selling point from a marketing perspective. 15:45 - 16:30 IT Governance and managing suppliers Dirk Jan van der Poel, Independent IT Advisor, member of the Supervisory Board of Citco Bank Netherlands IT programmes and projects are now becoming so big, touching on so many aspects of an organisation, that they can pose a singular new risk to the continuity of the organisation itself. Yes, IT projects may be riskier than you might have thought. Is every IT programme and IT project therefore doomed? Not if common sense prevails and certain good practices are applied. 16:30 - 18:30 Reception How can a contract be setup so it increases the chances of success? An agile contract model that aims to maximise collaboration between customer and supplier is presented. It sets up a framework to control the process and a way to address the scope. An associated cost model and nine requirements for the two parties support the successful ITproject.
