Integration is becoming significantly more important in most organizations, with the coexistence of legacy systems, enterprise wide IT procurement and acquisitions of new business. Problems arise when there is misunderstanding and inability to properly communicate the objectives of the management team on the business side with the IT department. This seminar will focus on bridging the leadership gap, by examining:

• What due diligence and value assessments need to be performed

• Implementation of C level policies

• How to adequately define requirements

• Practical strategies and best practices for improving communications between business and IT

• A panel of experts will speak about how they overcame the challenges encountered in the implementation of a successful integration.
