An entrepreneur in New Zealand has set up a website aimed at helping the local IT and business community to work together to improve IT practices.
The site also includes a ranking tool for IT professionals and organisations to rank their IT practices and to see how well they are performing.
At least 25% of IT projects in New Zealand fail annually and the economy loses more than £600,000 every year as a result of these project failures, says Getting IT Right website founder Scott Groombridge.
The website harnesses the support of industry experts to help raise the bar in IT projects.
Groombridge believes that following best practices and proven methods is key to improving the success rate of projects and reducing costs for organisations.
