Annual Survey to Measure I.T. Improvement in New Zealand
Posted on 2-Nov-2011 14:09 | Tags Filed under: News

A first-ever New Zealand survey to measure I.T. improvement on an annual basis has been launched today by the Getting I.T. Right Initiative and IDC.

The Getting I.T. Right survey is a long-term annual survey designed to provide valuable information on the status of I.T. in New Zealand organisations, including I.T.’s involvement in organisations’ strategic planning and the level of alignment between organisations’ I.T. projects and business strategy. The initial survey’s results will provide a benchmark to measure year on year improvement in I.T. in New Zealand.

Business executives, ICT managers, project managers and line-of-business managers are invited to participate in the survey at https://www.research.net/idc_getITright. The survey will remain open till 30 November 2011.

The survey is part of the non-profit Getting I.T. Right Initiative first launched in March to help improve I.T. in New Zealand by providing and promoting best I.T. practices for delivering successful I.T. projects.

“I.T. project failure is an all too common problem. The amount of money we waste every year on project failures could be better spent,” says Getting I.T. Right founder Scott Groombridge. “I launched the initiative because I believe that by working together we really can make a difference in getting I.T. right in New Zealand.”

“In the last few months we’ve built a strong community via the website (http://www.gettingitright.co.nz), LinkedIn and other channels, and it’s been great seeing I.T. and business professionals sharing ideas and information to deliver projects successfully.”

The intiative has also received strong support from the Government CIO and professional bodies such as the IOD, NZCS, TUANZ, NZICT, NZICA and PMI.

“We will continue to work closely with the professional bodies to encourage organisations to utilise best I.T. practices and the annual survey conducted by IDC will be a good measure to see how successful New Zealand has been in improving I.T.”

Ullrich Loeffler, Country Manager of IDC NZ says, “improving the value derived from ICT investments is in the interest of every organisation and the New Zealand economy as a whole. Organisations in New Zealand have to work around the parameters of limited availability of capital funding, ICT expertise and staff. Maximising the returns from the investments made will directly impact the competitiveness of New Zealand in the global market place.”

All survey results will be shared with the participants and detailed reports on the findings will be published in early 2012.

In addition to the survey the initiative will launch a seminar series in 2012 to cover topics that will help improve I.T. projects.
