Purpose of Each Category of Sessions

The Financial World of Information Technology Program held on April 15-19 is the only “must attend” program for IT financial management practitioners as this conference program offers the most sessions and networking opportunities related to the financial planning, acquisition, management, and evaluation of IT assets and expenditures. It is the most highly regarded IT financial conference of its kind because it is conducted by many of the leading experts and attended by so many practitioners of IT financial management.

The IT Financial Issues for Senior Executives and Their Direct Reports Sessions provides a comprehensive overview of the major financial disciplines every CFO, CEO, CIO, Director, Financial Manager, Controller and their direct reports should understand to perform his or her responsibilities. There is no university or educational program that offers such a complete agenda for IT organizations that addresses the planning, controlling, pricing, evaluating and decision making aspects of IT financial management. Many of the speakers were selected from among the leading experts in their field.

The IT Financial Management Best Practices Sessions bring together the vast experiences of practitioners and leading experts with experiences from best practice organizations. The material covers best practices and procedures in the design, implementation and application of the various financial tools, techniques and disciplines used in the major areas of IT financial management.

The IT Strategic and Financial Planning, Budgeting and Reporting Sessions are the first known curriculum of its kind. It is filled with case studies and hands-on experiences regarding trends, models, techniques, best practices, and new ideas for effective IT financial planning, forecasting, budgeting, reporting and cost control. You should come away with a number of good ideas for improving your current practices and procedures.

The IT Asset Management Sessions bring together the vast experiences of practitioners and leading experts with experiences from best practice organizations. It provides speakers who are highly experienced experts in this field and creates a forum of asset and expense management practitioners to discuss a wide spectrum of tools and techniques used for investment analysis, contract negotiation, procurement and disposal for IT asset management.

The IT Performance Management and Benchmarking Sessions provide a unique forum for executives and practitioners to discuss their hot issues, challenges and solutions. The material covers practices and procedures in the design, implementation and application of the various tools and techniques in identifying, measuring, monitoring, understanding and evaluating the key drivers of IT performance.

About the Hotel

French Quarter Hotel Monteleone

Hotel Monteleone is the only hotel in the heart of the historic French Quarter. This National Historic Landmark Hotel has provided world-class luxury and historic accommodations to travelers to New Orleans since 1886 including a rooftop pool and 24/7 fitness center with panoramic views of both the Mississippi River and the French Quarter. Guests find the perfect blend of southern hospitality, old world grandeur and casual elegance. As one of the only family owned hotels in the city, they take exceptional pride in the personal attention they give each guest. ITFMA will be using special rooms at the AAA Four Diamond hotel like the pictured Queen Anne Ballroom for their meetings.

Carousel Bar & Lounge

A city as eccentric and magical as New Orleans deserves a bar as fanciful as The Carousel Bar & Lounge. Housed in the lobby of the storied Hotel Monteleone, a haunt of Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams, is an entire 1930s revolving carousel. This classic New Orleans hotel bar is the city’s only revolving bar. For decades, it has lured guests in to take a spin on the 25-seat, bright, circus-clad Merry-Go-Round. The Carousel Bar overlooks famed Royal Street, where you can enjoy the best people watching in the French Quarter. With its regular entertainment schedule of live New Orleans music and craft cocktail selection, this New Orleans hotel bar has become one of the most popular bars in the French Quarter. Recently, Vogue Living named the bar one of the Top 20 Bars in the World, due in equal parts to the whimsical revolving carousel and comprehensive list of cocktails. No visit to New Orleans would be complete without a ride on the Carousel Bar.

Nearby Attractions

The French Quarter is the oldest neighborhood in the city and is a National Historic Landmark. So much of what makes New Orleans unique is captured in the melting pot atmosphere of the French Quarter, from the boisterous party vibe of Bourbon Street to the bohemian elegance of Royal Street where the Hotel Monteleone is located. It's a neighborhood full of entertainment and surprises.

With Bourbon Street just one block away, guests of the hotel are within walking distance of the most exciting night life in America, where Mardi Gras is a state of mind and jazz is king. From the Hotel Monteleone, guests are just a short walk from streetcars that travel through the historic Garden District and the gracious mansions that line St. Charles Avenue. It is often said that the French Quarter begins in the lobby of The Hotel Monteleone. Step outside this historic French Quarter hotel to discover Royal Street (antiques, estate jewelry, oriental rugs, art, architecture). Quaint New Orleans restaurants and specialty shops line the French Quarter streets. Enjoy New Orleans tourist attractions just steps from the hotel, including Jackson Square (historic buildings), Bourbon Street (music venues, restaurants), the French Market (shops, restaurants, flea market, monuments), Harrah’s Casino, and the River Walk (outlet mall, view steamboats along the Mississippi River).
