March 2014 Dinner Meeting
The Role of the Chief Portfolio Office
by Alison Pingelski, Director, EPMO, NYS
Please note this month's meeting is on THURSDAY 03/20/2014!
This meeting is co-hosted with the New York State Forum.
Description: The NYS Office of Information Technology Services (ITS) was created by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to consolidate IT service delivery to New York State agencies. Historically, information technology systems and applications had been developed in a decentralized fashion, with solutions developed and deployed within individual state agencies for specific programs or regions. New York State agencies were supported by their own IT leadership, technologists and support staff working with disparate IT tools and methods delivered on varied technical platforms. ITS was created to consolidate information technology under one centralized organization with an enterprise view of financial management, human resource development and program management. An IT Transformation Program was created to manage and coordinate the work needed to accomplish this goal.
This presentation will include an understanding of the creation of the Chief Portfolio Office within the context of the formation of ITS and the IT Transformation, the challenges/lessons learned with forming the new office and IT Governance.
