Various Maintenance and Improvements

We have made improvements to the website to give you a better user experience. This is apart of bringing you the best and most up-to-date website.


Hall of Fame Upgrades
December 16, 2014

We love to recognize clients for their participation and contributions, so we've made a few improvements to the Info-Tech Hall of Fame:

  • The page header has been improved with the addition of a background image which is more consistent with the rest of the site and better frames our monthly award showcase.
  • Award showcases from previous months can now be accessed using a drop down near the top of the page. 
  • Each showcase has been given a unique URL which can be bookmarked and shared.
  • The gallery can now be filtered by area of participation (Applications, Infrastructure, or Strategy & Leadership), and automatically loads more entries as you scroll to the bottom of the page.

Visit the Info-Tech Hall of Fame today to see all of the new changes and faces!  


The Management and Governance Framework
December 10, 2014

The new Management and Governance page is a much more useful replacement to the former "Process and Governance" page. The key piece of this is the new Management and Governance Framework, based visually off the Periodic Table of the Elements.

This area features 45 comprehensive and connected methodologies that will help you improve your core IT processes. Each component of this framework provides a set of materials and tools to help you understand best practices and provide superior business value.

Based in COBIT, these methodologies are road tested and will provide measurable results for your team.

The codes in the corners all refer to the COBIT designation.
  • EDM = Evaluate, Direct, and Monitor
  • APO = Align, Plan, and Organize
  • BAI = Build, Acquire, and Implement
  • DSS = Deliver, Service, and Support
  • MEA = Measure
We have an additional 8 exclusive ITRG designations where we felt there were opportunities to flesh out COBIT's framework.
Those areas are:
  • ITRG01 - IT Organizational Design
  • ITRG02 - Leadership, Culture, and Values
  • ITRG03 - Manage Service Catalogs
  • ITRG04 - Application Portfolio Management
  • ITRG05 - Application Maintenance
  • ITRG06 - Business Intelligence and Reporting
  • ITRG07 - Data Architecture
  • ITRG08 - Data Quality
This page also supports the soon to be released IT Management and Governance Diagnostic which will help IT leaders assign process accountability, assess their departmental strengths and weaknesses, and figure out where they need to go next.

Get started with the Management and Governance Framework today.
