The presentation was given by Dr Emanuel Camilleri who is currently, a visiting senior lecturer at the University of Malta and author of the book "Project Success: Critical Factors and Behaviours" published by Gower. 

Mr. Camilleri explained in his presentation, the research he carried out for his book, and explained why some projects are perceived as failures when they have met all the traditional standards of success, namely, completed on time, completed within budget and meeting all the technical specifications.
On the other hand he explained why are projects perceived to be successful when they have failed to meet two important criteria that are traditionally associated with success, namely, not completed on time and not completed within budget. Mr Camilleri went on to give his view of what is termed as project success. In a project, apart from the traditional and typical points of failure, namely that of project scope, organisation, project team, the planning and project control, there are also other points of failure, like for example the project strategic fit.  He then went on to explain the different types of risks and its quantitative analysis using PERT.

A discussion then followed between the attendants and Mr Camilleri, led by the BCS Chairman, namely Mr. Carm Cachia. This also served as a means of networking between the individuals, giving their views and experience in the area.

This event, held jointly by the BCS Malta Section (www.bcs.org.mt) and ISACA Malta Chapter (www.isaca-malta.org), focused on Business Continuity Management (BCM) for Data Centres.

Both near-shore, industrial strength, commercial IT providers, as well as small, in-house IT set-ups need the resilience that BCM provides, assuring that B2B, B2C, B2G E-services, ERP etc. continue operating at all times. IT providers ― external and internal ― need BCM because their clients, large and small ― Banks, Utilities, Ports, Airports, iGaming, Retail and Manufacturing, themselves need it.

The event was of interest to CIOs, CTOs, Data Centre Managers, Infosec Managers, IT Architects, Software Developers, Testers, and Auditors ― as well as CEOs / CFOs from all sectors.
