Global Challenges and Solutions in IT Business I

Using world-wide IT resources to develop and maintain a modern IT-landscape.

This course will take you through the whole journey from customers considering using world-wide IT resources to the ”Steady State” of maintaining an a modern IT-landscape

During the course you will meet senior managers and subject matter experts from IBM and Tieto that will guide you through the journey using well proven methods and tools combined with hands-on experiences from global customer cases. This will give you a deep understanding of the “reality” in the business in terms of success and failure.

Needless to say, DSV will provide you with the academic resources to critically evaluate real life business versus theories. And, if you find gaps between the two, practitioners will be there to explain how it works for you.
