ITPM

It is necessary to design IT in a way that takes into account risk and return and to align it carefully with business strategy. At the same time, companies need powerful and flexible IT to support decision-making in order to be competitive and to gain competitive advantage. A holistic approach that does justice to this dual role of IT is the focus of the “IT Portfolio Management” project. The focus here is on economic and interdisciplinary issues rather than technological ones.

Value-oriented Management of IT projects

Within the scope of this proposal for a research grant, we pursue the objective to develop methods that allow for a continuous value-based steering of IT-projects based on a capable ex ante valuation. The results of prior granted research projects like e.g. “IT-Portfolio Management” (BU 809/10-1) provide the ideal basis for this undertaking: The objective of this specific project was the development of methods for the valuation of IT-projects and IT-portfolios considering both risk and return.
