As always, a full breakfast will be served buffet style beginning at 7:30 a.m. Presentations will begin at 8:00 a.m. The final presentations will be delivered during our catered lunch and will end just before 1:00 p.m.
The Forum agenda for July will feature Part II of successful strategies for “Running IT Like a Business.” This month reviews an in-depth case study of how USAA spun off their IT department as a separate business so that it now runs as a profit center. There have been some interesting obstacles along the way, but IT productivity is now double what it was before the change and their annual budget is 20% lower

Additional presentations will be made on “How to choose an enterprise standard Java application server” and “How to put hard value numbers on your IT infrastructure.”
