ITFMA Conference Workshops and Summary
ITFMA events are jam-packed with educational tracks delivered by Technology Business Management (TBM) and IT Financial Management (ITFMA) practitioners and professionals covering all aspects of the profession, ranging from IT planning to tool selection and data management, along with ideas and suggestions for best practices. Whether you are new to the industry or a seasoned veteran, the ITFMA events offer a wide variety of educational and working sessions providing information and learning for all.
The 2019 World of IT Financial Management Conference in San Antonio ran from Monday, July 15, through Friday, July 19, and was hosted at San Antonio’s historic Menger Hotel, located next door to the Alamo. The entire week was full of amazing content, great presentations, and exciting new insights into the world of TBM/ITFM. Attendees were able to hear firsthand from their peers how organizations are overcoming challenges in the world of IT Financial Management. In addition to the productive working sessions on best practices, dynamic roundtable discussions, and networking opportunities, attendees were able to learn about different services, like ComSci’s Bill of IT and Visual Modeling, for helping organizations achieve success and had the opportunity to network with ITFM practitioners.
Upland’s own resident Technology Business Management and IT Financial Management expert, Robert J. Bracco, Director of Customer Success-Product Marketing, attended the conference. Bob presented two educational tracks focusing on the value of TBM and the importance of keeping your systems and processes up-to-date.
In case you missed the show, here are the highlights of Bob’s sessions, which focused on the following trending topics:
- Modernizing Your ITFM/TBM Systems – What You Need to Know: The importance of TBM/ITFM and key points and suggestions to keep systems updated and relevant. If you would like to learn more about this topic, watch our webinar on replay, Modernizing Your ITFM/TBM Systems – What You Need to Know.
- Going Beyond Transparency with an Expert-Driven Approach to IT Financial Management showcased best practices in TBM/ITFM while also demonstrating Upland’s Project and Financial Management Solution suite to attendees.
We had the opportunity to meet with over 100 attendees at the conference and talked to both newcomers to the ITFM industry and seasoned veterans who have “been there-done that.” We look forward to seeing everyone again next year at the 2020 ITFMA conferences.
