October 28 – 30 I Fountainebleau, Miami Beach

As President of the TBM Council, I’m excited to announce the speaker lineup for the second-annual TBM Conference 2014. We have curated an incredible group of Global 2000 keynote speakers and session panelists, each one of who are recognized as visionaries and innovators in the area of managing IT like a business. 

At the inaugural conference last year, we brought together over 400 leaders in Seattle, for an exceptional event. After the success of the TBM Conference 2013, the next question was: How are we going to top this? 

Why #TBMC14 Needs to be on Your Calendar

With the unparalleled support of the TBM Council board, members, and my team at Apptio (plus a few sleepless nights), our 2014 event promises to top last year’s conference!

Our theme this year centers on how The Economics of IT are disrupting the way IT is managed and run today. We’re focused on how technology impacts every facet of an organization today; all the way through the supply chain right to the end customer.
