This paper addresses how Business Mashups are an excellent tool for businesses that need additional strategic value and tactical operating productivity out of their internal and collaborative external business processes.  In this context, what is being proposed as the “mashup”, at a highly abstract level, is Web 2.0 + BPR + Workflow Management.  An approach is recommended for conducting business process transformation using Business Mashups.
PPM is about IT, the PMO and all Business Functions.  Managing a portfolio of key work, projects and initiatives for a business involves cooperation and interchange based on easily obtainable, factual data about the status of the portfolio of current activities  
The biggest problem today with IT operations management is that there are too many methodologies.  Name your favorite acronym;  ITIL, CMMI, whatever;  all bring confusion and a sense of bureaucratic-fear to the folks in the trenches who just want to Do It - keep things running.

Project Lifecycle Governance – incorporating elements of PPM, ALM, ITIL and Cobit

The Project Lifecycle Governance we are talking about addresses the process from initiation of an IT project to the deployment into production, and the ability to conduct oversight across the entire series of events.

So what?  Doesn’t everyone do that? You may say.




You have tried structured IT process, and maybe even a structured enterprise tool, to manage your project initiation to deployment process.  And, has it failed, or been less than effective in getting projects, features or stories released at the right time, without any rollbacks necessary?
