DETROIT, May 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, announced today that Changepoint customer, Mr. Ulrich Aigner, Director of IT Service Management and Corporate Project Manager, Austrian Airlines is the selected speaker for the Compuware Solution Provider Session at the Gartner PPM and IT Governance Summit in London, UK.
After years of practicing project management, Austrian Airlines managed many projects but lacked a common goal for them. The organization was focused on optimizing the business unit rather than helping achieve company goals. In his presentation, "How to Drive Innovation via Advanced Project and Portfolio Management," Ulrich Aigner will discuss three pillars that formed Austrian Airlines' strategy for implementing an in-depth IT PPM solution, the importance of project management to drive innovation, how to put the 'management' into project portfolio management, and how to stay focused on topics that will propel your forward.
During the conference, Changepoint consultant Vange Yianni will also deliver a theatre presentation, entitled, "Elevating the Role of the CIO to Strategic Business Partner," which examines the changing role of the CIO from technical advisor to business partner, as IT transitions from a cost center to a driver of business innovation.
The Gartner PPM & IT Governance Summit 2013 is the premier gathering of program and portfolio management executives focused on improving how organizations select, implement and manage IT initiatives and services. Attendees to the event will gain new methods of prioritization, resource optimization and governance to address competing strategic goals as well as how to adapt programs with an eye toward shifting risks and ongoing business case validity.
Compuware Changepoint is a platinum sponsor and exhibitor at the event. Attendees at the conference can visit the Changepoint team in the exhibit hall at stand PL3
