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.

Nearby Attractions

An outdoor adventure of a 10-mile hike & bike trail and Congress Bridge, otherwise known as “Bat Bridge,” are just outside the front door of the hotel. A short walk across the bridge is downtown Austin where live music, good food and outdoor fun blend into a unique mix of smart and hip. Catch music legends and the newest additions to the scene at nearby entertainment districts, including SoCo (South Congress), Warehouse District, 2nd Street and Sixth Street – all offering live entertainment, delicious food, unique shops and world-class attractions.

The Sixth Street Entertainment District is home to the city’s coolest music bars and performance venues, where you can catch local and national bands, including Parish Underground and the 512 on 6th. The nine blocks of Sixth Street – a National Register District – are lined with dozens of cool restaurants, cafes, coffee shops, bars, and food trucks, where you will find everything from Tex-Mex to burgers to seasonal Hill Country cuisine. Check out popular eateries like Old School Bar and Grill, Due Forni Pizza and Wine, and Lichas Cantina. Stroll along Sixth Street and browse the local shops, boutiques, and art galleries, where you’ll find everything from clothing, jewelry, toys and wine to furniture and local art. Stop by Wild About Music, for unique lifestyle, music, art and gifts to take home, or MAGA La Boheme.

The Bat Bridge is the largest urban bat colony in North America! It is home to a million bats that reside on the underside of the bridge. Each evening around sunset the Congress Avenue bats emerge like a black cloud from the crevices of the bridge. Covering the countryside in search of food, it is estimated that the bats consume from 10,000 to 30,000 pounds of insects. Watching their nightly flight is a favorite evening activity of locals and tourists, and there are plenty of locations along Lady Bird Lake where you can watch the bats. Flights normally happen around 8:00 to 8:30 p.m. Capital Cruises, located on the Hyatt Regency Austin boat dock, offer boat tours of Lady Bird Lake including bat watching cruises, which are especially popular in summer when warm nights are perfect for bat watching.

One mile from the hotel is the 351-acre Zilker Metropolitan Park (on Barton Springs Road – same as the Hyatt Regency Hotel). The Park offers a miniature train ride, canoe rental, natural spring-fed pool, botanical gardens, hillside theatre, sculpture garden and museum, nature and science center, large multi-age playscape, hike and bike trails, golf course, and picnic areas.
