Information Systems 2015: PMP and Security - A Necessary Union?

Project Management

Who hasn’t heard of all the data breaches recently? Do you think Project Management played a role in them or was it just IT? We’re Project Managers — how much do we need to know about security? That’s what the Security staff is for, right? As Project Managers, it’s our role to understand and manage all project risks, including information security. As such, it’s everyone’s responsibility to think about security and know who to engage and when. This session discusses the key components of how to incorporate security into the PM Lifecycle. You will learn why security is important, basic security for project managers, and how to embed security best practices into the PM Lifecycle.

The abundance of data, the popularity and the growth of the cloud, advances in analytics, new user experience design and business models have converged. The result of this convergence is the imperative for everyone to make decisions based on facts and data. Where once organizations relied on data scientists or IT to prepare and interpret data, now marketing, sales, operations, finance and HR professionals want to get answers they need from all types of data—on their own. According to a recent business survey conducted by the International Data Corporation and Computerworld, only a small fraction of businesses use analytics tools as part of their decision-making. Considering that analytics enables people to use refined and trusted data to discover insights, predict outcomes, visualize results, create reports, and collaborate with others, the fact that so few organizations use it indicates that it’s time for revolution in analytics technology.

SAP and SAM – Where do you begin?

Snow Software

SAP represents one of the most strategic and financial software investments for a company. The funding, oversight and governance of SAP does not always fall within the IT department of an enterprise. In many organizations that have committed time, resources and planning for a global, full-scale deployment of Software Asset Management (SAM) processes and a supporting platform, SAP is excluded from the scope of coverage. Applying the same software license management and cost-efficiencies that are already in place for the large-scale software enterprise vendors to SAP can introduce some challenges. This Webinar focuses on how various companies have wrestled with this challenge, started key SAM initiatives and succeeded. This Webinar will be facilitated by Brian Skiba from Snow Software. He has worked with dozens of enterprises in kicking off their SAM programs for SAP.
