New website launched to raise the IT bar in New Zealand
Posted on 21-Mar-2011 19:39. | Tags Filed under: News.



A new IT website, “Getting I.T. Right” (www.gettingitright.co.nz), has been launched this month to support organisations and IT professionals in achieving greater successes with their I.T projects. The non-profit site which features the key factors to delivering successful projects, was developed for the IT and business community to work together to improve IT in New Zealand.

“Research shows that projects in New Zealand are in a poor state with at least 25% of all I.T. projects failing every year. The New Zealand economy loses over $1.5 billion every year as a result of these project failures,” says Getting IT Right website founder Scott Groombridge.

“I am in a position where I get to talk to a large number of people in the IT community and they all say the same thing – “my project is in trouble”. I mulled this over for a year or two before the penny dropped and I found a way to help, with the support of industry experts.”

“By following best practices and proven methods we can improve the success rate of projects and reduce costs for organisations, and hence improve the New Zealand economy.”

In addition to providing the key factors for delivering successful projects the new website offers a ranking tool for IT professionals and organisations to rank their IT practices and to see how well they are performing.

Scott Groombridge added: “There is no reason why New Zealand can’t be one of the best IT shops in the world. This site is a place where people can get the information they are after and discuss different ideas. By using the site as a foundation the IT and business community can further build on it to provide a great reference site for any IT project to be successful.”
