We’ve got so much in store for Federal IT leaders at TBMC15!

By Archive User posted 09-10-2015 15:02


Today’s Federal IT leaders are facing many of the same challenges as their private sector counterparts – heightened expectations, the need to optimize spending and a lack of transparency into their costs and investments.


Since the launch of the IT COST Commission this past April, we’ve done a lot of work to understand the unique challenges and constraints facing the Federal CIO. And although there are many parallels with the private sector, we’ve also learned about the complexities of the public sector. It’s with these learnings in mind that we set out to plan this year’s TBM Conference to have collaborative opportunities available which are tailored to a Federal audience. We invite you to join us in Chicago to learn and engage in discussions focused on the application of Technology Business Management in the public sector.


TBM in the Federal Sector

Each year, the Federal government spends more than $79 billion on technology. Much of this spend is distributed across multiple agencies and component agencies with little insight into the efficiency of each dollar spent. During this keynote discussion, you’ll hear from a panel of Federal CIOs participating in the IT COST Commission share their perspective on how “managing IT like a business” can become a reality in the Federal government. This keynote panel will be moderated by Deloitte and include:

  • Frank Baitman, CIO Department of Health and Human Services
  • Richard McKinney, CIO of Department of Transportation
  • Lisa Schlosser, Deputy Administrator of the Office of Management and Budget


IT COST Commission Meeting at the TBM Conference

We invite you to attend the October meeting of the ITCC, which will bring our Federal CIOs and partners together to review and comment on the latest progress in the creation of a federalized model for gaining transparency into agency IT spending. The Commission is proposing to organize around four different work streams which together will provide a common standard for classifying and reporting costs to enable a consistent method to define, analyze, report, and decision all aspects of IT cost.


Engage on pressing issues and Network with Your Peers

Collaborate with others on TBM Taxonomy and FITARA, including how FITARA affects IT spending and how you can leverage the Apptio Unified TBM Model (ATUM) standard to provide the highest level cost transparency for federal reporting requirements.

Network with private sector peers and thought leaders such as Mike Brown, CIO at ExxonMobil, Jim DuBois, CIO at Microsoft, and the entire TBM Council Board of Directors during breakout sessions and scheduled networking events.

TBM Conference brings the greatest minds in technology to Chicago to explore best practices that produce greater value, align IT with organization goals, and deliver Technology Business Management breakthroughs. Register today!
