Sascha Klinke, Senior Director Alfabet Advisory, Software AG
Paula Ziehr, Director Product Marketing, Software AG

Technology Portfolio Governance (TPG) aims at establishing a continuous process to monitor and evaluate technological trends and assess them regarding their influence, applicability and impact to the enterprise. It further sets and develops technological standards that serve as a framework for building and maintaining a technologically sustainable IT landscape. TPG is an essential part of an IT organization’s strategic planning process. This planning process needs to take into consideration which technologies have reached obsolescence and can be retired as well as identifying where technical debt has accumulated. A strategic planning process should also incorporate risk and threat considerations. In this master class, learn how to build a TPG discipline that addresses these requirements.
