“The Business Value of Software” – A New Book by Michael D.S. Harris Launches Today
Book focuses on how to maximize the flow of business value from traditional IT cost centers
September 12, 2017 (Malvern, Pa.) – Many organizations view their IT departments as cost-centers with very little visibility into how the costs are quantified and how value is extracted.
Michael D.S. Harris, an internationally recognized author and speaker on a range of topics related to the Value Visualization of IT, releases a new book today addressing exactly how organizations can change their IT department from a cost center to a value center – and one that is critical to the success of the business. Assess the value of their initiatives.
The Business Value of Software addresses how in today’s digital age, driving software value is an important, and often overlooked, key strategy. Executives, and the corporate board, need to expect the highest level of business value from the software the organization is developing, buying and selling. In today’s digital transformation marketplace, it is imperative that organizations start driving business value from software development initiatives.
“Agile and lean techniques have helped to revolutionize software development, but they don’t assess the total value of these initiatives,” said Harris. “I worked on this book so that technology teams have a road map to create software development strategies that are organized, managed and measured to maximize the flow of business value, end-to-end.”
The book offers valuable advice and examples for identifying value and making it visible to all stakeholders (business and IT) in order to drive the decisions that will increase the flow of software value and drive greater business and economic benefits.
