I. T. Wars

It Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

I. T. Wars by David Scott Book Resume:

I.T. Wars provides a clear path to proper alignment of technology and business, in achieving best results and ongoing returns. The true challenge is in bringing diverse groups of people together from the business and technical realms, in defining needs and making true delivery of solutions. The Business-Technology Weave is an approach that turns everyone and everything into a responsible forward edge. It includes considerations of people, knowledge, communication, corporate culture, attitudes, relationships, content (information), infrastructure, applications, needs, and expectations. It comprises missions with specific beliefs, values, and standards in service to security and growth. The Weave clears political impairments, helps to dismantle protectionism and jealousy, and breaks down departmental "silos." It opens the way to a future that you define - in preventing the alternative: future's imposition on you. What are the liabilities in today's environment of e-mail, blogs, IMs, downloads, and portable data? Consider: What is being done 'in the name of your domain'? How best to manage content, in avoiding a glut of information? How can staff best utilize the power of the utilities that are delivered to their desktops? What are the new scales of disaster planning, preparedness, prevention, and recovery? What is your organization's role in contributing to the surrounding public safety - in securing your own? I.T. Wars begins with a patient, comprehensive exposure of today's environment and challenges, with equal attention to the Business and IT reader. Whether your organization is public, private, government agency, or association you share in the same concerns: You need a business-driven technology strategy, as well as a business serving one. Now you can develop a vision and pragmatism strong enough to qualify for discussion, planning, and achievement of the best business-technology outcomes.

What then is an information technology executive to do in order to raise the prominence of his or her department? In World Class IT, recognized expert in IT strategy Peter High reveals the essential principles IT executives must follow and the order in which they should follow them whether they are at the helm of a high-performing department or one in need of great improvement. Principle 1: Recruit, train, and retain World Class IT people Principle 2: Build and maintain a robust IT infrastructure Principle 3: Manage projects and portfolios effectively Principle 4: Ensure partnerships within the IT department and with the business Principle 5: Develop a collaborative relationship with external partners The principles and associated subprinciples and metrics introduced in World Class IT have been used by IT and business executives alike at many Global 1000 companies to monitor and improve IT's performance.

The IT Measurement Compendium

It Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The IT Measurement Compendium by Manfred Bundschuh,Carol Dekkers Book Resume:

“As projects get more complicated, managers stop learning from their - perience. It is important to understand how that happens and how to change it.... Fallible estimates: In software development, initial estimates for a project shape the trajectory of decisions that a manager makes over its life. For ex- ple, estimates of the productivity of the team members influence decisions about the size of the team, which in turn affect the team’s actual output. The trouble is that initial estimates usually turn out to be wrong. ” (Sengupta, 2008) This book aims directly to increase the awareness among managers and practitioners that estimation is as important as the work to be done in so- ware and systems development. You can manage what you can measure! Readers will find in this book a collection of lessons learned from the worldwide “metrics community,” which we have documented and enhanced with our own experiences in the field of software measurement and estimating. Our goal is to support our readers to harvest the benefits of estimating and - prove their software development processes. We present the 5 ISO/I- acknowledged Functional Sizing Methods with variants, experiences, counting rules, and case studies – and most importantly, illustrate through practical - amples how to use functional size measurement to produce realistic estimates. The book is written in a practical manner, especially for the busy practitioner community. It is aimed to be used as a manual and an assistant for everyday work.

James Baldwin's Go Tell it on the Mountain

It Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

James Baldwin's Go Tell it on the Mountain by Carol E. Henderson Book Resume:

The publication of James Baldwin's Go Tell It on the Mountain ushered in a new age of the urban telling of a tale twice told yet rarely expressed in such vivid portraits. Go Tell It unveils the struggle of man with his God and that of man with himself. Baldwin's intense scrutiny of the spiritual and communal customs that serve as moral centers of the black community directs attention to the striking incongruities of religious fundamentalism and oppression. This book examines these multiple impulses, challenging the widely held convention that politics and religion do not mix.

The National Programme for IT in the NHS

It Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The National Programme for IT in the NHS by Great Britain: National Audit Office Book Resume:

The National Programme for Information Technology in the NHS (the Programme) is a ten year programme to use information technology (IT) to reform the way the NHS in England uses information, and hence to improve services and the quality of patient care. The core of the Programme will be the NHS Care Records Service, but other elements include x-rays accessible by computer, electronic transmission of prescriptions, and booking of first outpatient appointments. The Programme was launched in 2002, and is now run by an agency, NHS Connecting for Health. This report examines: the progress made in delivering the systems against the original plans and costs (part 1); steps taken by the Department of Health, the agency and the NHS to deliver the Programme (part 2); how the IT systems have been procured (part 3); how the NHS is preparing to use the systems (part 4). The NAO estimates the gross cost of the Programme will be £12.4 billion to 2013-14. Although the pilot NHS Care Records Service will not be in place until late 2006, almost two years late, and other milestones have been deferred, the NAO reports substantial progress with the Programme. Management systems are in place, contracts were placed quickly and achieved large reductions in prices from bidders, and contract terms include important safeguards to secure value for money. Deployments of operational systems have begun, and several additional tasks have been delivered that were outside the original brief. Three key areas are identified which present significant challenges to the successful implementation of the Programme: ensuring IT suppliers continue to deliver systems that meet the needs of the NHS, to agreed timescales without further slippage; ensuring NHS organizations play a full part in implementing the systems; winning the support of NHS staff and the public in making the best use of the systems to improve services. The NAO report makes a number of recommendations for future management of the Programme.

The Business Value of IT

It Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Business Value of IT by Michael D. S. Harris,David Herron,Stasia Iwanicki Book Resume:

In order to maximize IT resources and justify IT expenditures, CIO’s and other IT managers must be able to identify meaningful metrics and explain them in a way that management can understand. The Business Value of IT: Managing Risks, Optimizing Performance, and Measuring Results solves this problem by providing practical answers to these questions: What does IT contribute to the business? Why should we care about IT governance? How can we best measure IT performance? How do we mitigate the risks associated with change? Leading consultants Michael D. Harris, David E. Herron, and Stasia Iwanicki share their real-world experiences to explain how you can demonstrate IT’s value, and potentially find extra value you didn’t know your IT organization creates. They also show how to apply risk management to process improvement and avoid unintended consequences of process improvement programs. The text provides the understanding required to discover the processes necessary to: prioritize your organization’s IT activities. identify alternative measurement frameworks, and evaluate the best approaches to outsourcing. Many IT organizations have successfully implemented the techniques described in this book to increase their business value. This work identifies the organizational and cultural obstacles you need to remove to get started along the same path.

Trying to Say it

It Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Trying to Say it by Philip Booth Book Resume:

As one of Robert Frost's last students, Philip Booth has for more than four decades written poems prized for their clarity and depth. As founder of the Syracuse University Creative Writing Program, he has been a crucial influence in the early stages of such individually distinguished poets as Thomas Centolella, Stephen Dunn, Carol Frost, Brooks Haxton, Larry Levis, Jane Mead, Jay Meek, Susan Mitchel, Barbara Moore, and Lucia Perillo. The New York Times Book Review has said that "anyone who cares about poetry knows his work." Gathering together selections from his notebooks, dreamlogs, memoirs, and essays of such poets as Frost, Robert Lowell and George Oppen, Trying to Say It particularly focuses on the ways that the tension between in-formed structures and lineation create poems which--in all senses--move. Employing the Thoreauvian sense of place for which his poetry is known, Booth probes the nature of poetry itself, as well as the poetry of nature--yielding insights that are rooted in the acute observation that catalyzes imagination. Infused with a restless spirit in search of a moving language commensurate with the complexity of being fully alive, the essays collected in Trying to Say It reveal the pulses of a teacher's mind and a poet's heart. Philip Booth is the author of nine books of poetry, and has been honored by Guggenheim, Rockefeller, and National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, the National Institute of Arts and Letters, and the Academy of American Poets.

Delivering Successful IT-enabled Business Change

Delivering Successful IT-enabled Business Change by Great Britain. National Audit Office Book Resume:

The Government set out its strategy to improve the delivery of public services through increased and better use of information technology (Cm. 6683, ISBN 0101668325) in November 2005, with the aim of ensuring services are designed around the needs of customers or citizens rather than the provider. Drawing on 24 case studies from the public and private sectors in the UK and overseas, this NAO report highlights examples of successful IT-enabled programmes and projects which have achieved tangible benefits for citizens and taxpayers and identifies good practice which can be transferred to new and existing government programmes and projects. It pinpoints three key issues in these success stories relating to: i) the degree of engagement by senior decision-makers; ii) the level of organisational understanding of what is needed to be an 'intelligent client' (in terms of having the necessary skills to negotiate effectively with suppliers and users); and iii) the importance of realising the benefits of change by determining at the outset what the desired benefits are and how the project will be managed to ensure these benefits are optimised.

See it Now Confronts McCarthyism

It Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

See it Now Confronts McCarthyism by Thomas Rosteck Book Resume:

In late 1953 and early 1954, Edward R. Murrow and Fred W. Friendly's See It Now television documentary broadcast a series of four programs that dealt with abuses of McCarthyism: "The Case of Milo Radulovich," "An Argument in Indianapolis," "A Report on Senator McCarthy," and "Annie Lee Moss Before the McCarthy Committee." Each program focused upon elements of McCarthyism - the blacklist, the suspicion of anything "liberal," the Congressional hearing and immunity, even the political tactics of Senator Joseph R. McCarthy himself. These justifiably acclaimed telecasts have been credited with forever defining the form of television documentary and with greatly contributing to the "downfall" of the senator and the movement that took his name. Rosteck studies these programs for what they reveal about the rhetoric of television documentary and the ideological representations within. He considers the four programs as artifacts that expose a crucial era in American political life and represent cultural and ideological struggles. Specifically, Rosteck analyzes the programs as instances of public discourse that symbolically reframe McCarthyism, and he provides us with the first sustained exploration and case study of documentary television as a discrete genre. He explores how the programs "work" as public argument in a way that goes beyond an analysis of content or propositional "logic." Indeed it may be, Rosteck says, that See It Now uses the form of the documentary medium and the myth it fosters - that of the open and free exchange of ideas - as "argument" against McCarthyism. Because he sets the programs in their particular situation and historical context, Rosteck also helps us understand a unique era in recent American history what one historian has called "The Decade of Fear" when the national mood was one of mistrust and suspicion. The See It Now programs influenced the development of both the television documentary and the television industry. Rosteck identifies the birth of the documentary form in these famous programs and shows how the content and structure of the programs reflect certain social and cultural assumptions. As cultural exploration, this volume not only shows a history of the era of the programs; it also illuminates a short segment of recent American experience through documentary artifacts from the time.
