ITP Asia Magazine Features ITpreneurs.
February 21, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsITpreneurs has been featured in the October issue of the ITP Asia magazine, one of the leading publications on the IT Industry worldwide, with readership from Europe’s key strategic decision makers in both the private and public sectors. ITP aims to inform and educate in its coverage of regional issues, IT Best Practices and developments in technology.
ITpreneurs is featured in two sections of the magazine, namely the Roundtable and the Editorial sections. In the Roundtable article, Katsushi Yaginuma – Business Manager, Asia – ITpreneurs, is featured in the discussion with other professionals from Altiris, BMC, Computer Associates, Hewlett Packard and Quint on the framework and issues of IT Service Management and the organizations. In the discussion, he has focused on the effectiveness of adopting ITSM in the business organizations. With the help of statistics from Gartner, he reiterated that the overall results of moving from no adoption of IT Service Management to full adoption can reduce an organization’s total cost of ownership by as much as 48 per cent. “Companies benefit most if they take a planned and well thought out approach to building individual and organizational competency in ITIL and IT Service Management (ITSM)”, says Katsu.
ITpreneurs’ CEO, Sukhbir Jasuja, presents a focused article on “Building Sustainable IT Management Competence: From Tech Geeks to Process Gurus” that engenders a new way of looking at organizational competence in the editorial section of the magazine.
In his article, Sukhbir Jasuja underscores the shift in the role of IT professionals with the adoption of international best practice frameworks such as COBIT, ITIL and Security Management (ISO 17799) - designed to govern and manage an IT Organization more efficiently. He recognized the importance of business skills and process competencies in building a strong business perspective in IT professionals that complements their technical abilities. By equating the sum of ‘individual competencies’ to ‘organizational competence’, he calls for building sustainable competence that will help meet IT organizational challenges in organizations and businesses today.
