NUI Maynooth’s IVI expands to the US east coast

9 Mar 2012

NUI Maynooth-based Innovation Value Institute (IVI), creator of the IT-CMF framework for CIOs and IT managers, has expanded its operations to the US east coast with the establishment of a chapter in New Jersey.

The IT-CMF sprung from a collaboration between Intel and NUI Maynooth to develop a gold-standard approach to help organisations derive greater value from their investment in IT.

The consortium has attracted more than 75 blue-chip members, including Chevron, BP, Cisco, Microsoft, Fujitsu, Boston Consulting Group and Ernst & Young.

The new US (east coast) chapter will be based at Secaucus in New Jersey, where the IVI held its annual North American Winter Summit.

Global expansion for IT-CMF

IVI general manager Martin Delaney said the establishment of the east coast chapter reflected IVI’s growth in the US over the past six years, with Pacific Gas and Electric and Abbott among the recent additions.  

He said the chapter would meet quarterly and would build an IVI community to support the adoption of the IT-CMF locally in what was a very important market.  

“We now have 19 key members who are headquartered here in the US and the establishment of the east coast chapter will allow them to engage formally to learn collectively, provide local training and support and direct IT-CMF mentoring,” Delaney said.
