IBM's customer training and support group SHARE is holding a week-long seminar and conference at the Manchester Grand Hyatt here this week.
Aligning business requirements with IT capabilities has captured the attention of many C-level executives and landed on the desks of many IT managers. It's assumed the top brass know what they want, but often they don't.
