Connecting business and delivery
IBM Rational for portfolio, demand and delivery management helps companies reduce waste and increase business value by managing the end-to-end lifecycle. As the marketplace works today and with the business climate we face organizations need to secure that they do the right things and focus on activities where they will gain most value, within the boundaries of organizational strategy and business objectives. With support in Rational solutions organizations secures better alignment of investment decisions with organizational strategies and priorities through facilitation of an effective dialog between business and IT. Organizations also gain improved efficiency in the governance of portfolio rationalization efforts, leading to optimized allocation of capital and resources with reduced time to decisions.
Customers will be able to capture voice of the customer, ideas, requirements, projects and more and then bring this forward in the process in order to prioritize, evaluate, compare, visualize and plan for optimized portfolios supporting business needs. Handled in an effective way organizations will understand true business value and being able to perform the tradeoffs such that projects are set up for success, and operate within resource, finance and time constraints.
But we can take many things for certain and one of them is that things will always change or go wrong at occasions. Being able to manage value and change in delivery via increased transparency, collaboration and communication across teams is vital. The disconnect between the business department and the delivery department, creates a challenge for organizations to do so. But for them being able to bridge this gap, it generates greater level of governance over the delivery, creating speed, transparency, understanding, control and collaboration, while keeping the focus on value.
