IT Governance

Achieve enhanced IT governance

Effective IT governance delivers the structured processes you need to meet business goals while defining the rules of your IT game. However, governance is only the first step towards improved IT decision making. Planview Enterprise does more than simply define processes; it goes beyond IT governance by managing actions, monitoring performance, and enabling you to deliver enhanced levels of value to your organization. Using a unique portfolio management discipline, Planview Enterprise can help you answer the following questions:

Missions, Objectives, Strategies, Tactics

  • Do my IT initiatives support business objectives?
  • Am I effectively allocating resources?
  • How can I optimize IT investments?
  • How can I add rigor to my business processes?
