Major IT projects not only cost a lot of money, they require coordination of business and technical people across multiple departments. So many of these projects go astray that IT is viewed a s an area of great danger and uncertainty by many executives.

Dr. John Levy helps business executives transform IT from a pain to a competitive advantage. Drawing on over 30 years as a manager in the computer, software and storage industry, he focuses on aligning Business and IT by interpreting IT language into business terms and helping business people express what they really need in IT solutions.
