Enterprise Program Management (EPMO)

Professional Project/Program Management is an important pillar of the success of project, program and portfolio management. It is critical under today's competitive conditions.

The right governance model for today might not always be the right model for tomorrow, but creating and evolving digital governance is essential for the agency to thrive in a digitally transformed world. Zip Zap IT understands that governance is a central component of successful digital transformation and that IT executives in federal government are using digital advances such as cloud, analytics, mobility, social media, and smart devices to modernize their organizations. We change customer interactions, internal business processes, and business models to take advantage of new technological capabilities. While all digital technology implementation presents new opportunities, it also creates new challenges. Our team’s experience has shown us time and again that governance is crucial to success in managing digital transformations. Our experience and research examines new challenges, vital elements of digital governance, and emerging transformations.

An important objective of governance is to make enterprise-level platforms happen. It can be very difficult to build a single view of customers or an integrated view of operations without strong governance. IT Governance provides clearer information to senior IT leadership and serves as the bases for advanced capabilities and new digital services.
