Governance Structures & Issues in IT

November 18th, 2008

As an architect we need to be concerned with what we're building and the processes we use to build it; however, equally important is considerations of how these (and other) decisions are made. This session will look at how governance affects us as architects, and explore issues we should be aware of to help make better governance decisions and recommendations.
