Software Risk Management in Digital Transformation was the focus during the 4th edition of the Information Technology Forum, hosted by International Institute of Research (IIR). Massimo Crubellati, CAST Italy Country Manager, discussed how Digital Transformation processes are changing the ICT scenario and why software risk management and prevention is mandatory.
Massimo shared our recipe for Digital Governance evolution: including a specific ICT Risk chapter in the design of the governance structure of the digital transformation, whose most relevant aspect is to determine which methods and through which key performance indicators to measure the operational risk inherent in the application portfolio. Measurement needs to be continuous and structural, it must include the assessment of application assets inherent weaknesses, through the analysis of correlations between the layers composing them. Thus obtaining, not only an effective prevention of direct damage ensuring the service resilience, but a reduction in maintenance and application management costs.
