Over the past several months, we at IVI have been working hard to share the fruits of our research efforts with our community of users and IT management professionals. Our monthly webinar series has been growing in popularity since the beginning of the year and we are happy to share our achievements and plans for the future.

Our quarterly refresh cycle has already seen two iterations of IT-CMF launched – the Spring Release on 1 February and the Summer Release on 1 May.  Further development and releases are scheduled for the Autumn and Winter quarters. So far this year, we have launched ten new or updated Critical Capabilities and two brand new Effectiveness Assessments in the areas of Cybersecurity and DevOps.

Monthly webinars

To complement these launches, we have also been running a series of regular hour-long webinars. There have been two types of webinar: a general introduction to IT-CMF; and more specific webinars that focus on particular capability areas.

The general introduction is aimed at IT management professionals who are new to the IT-CMF or exploring options for their organisation. In this webinar, we outline how the IT-CMF is structured, and how it aligns IT with Business strategy. We also show how our academic and industry-based research supports the ongoing development of IT-CMF in the digital age.

Each CC-focused webinar gives participants a unique opportunity to hear directly from the lead researchers involved in leading the development of the CC. The key drivers for (re)developing the CCs are outlined, along with an overview of the revised CC. We also discuss how these materials address the challenges of managing this aspect of IT in the digital age. Participants also have a chance to ask their own questions about the capability area and IT-CMF.

Never miss another webinar!

We run each webinar twice so that we can reach the widest possible audience. Tuesdays’ sessions run in the afternoon to facilitate European and US participants. Thursday’s sessions are in the morning to enable European and Australasian audiences.
