IT Economics Transparency
March 25, 2015 (9am PT, 12pm ET)

CIOs have an increasing need to care about the finances and costs of IT, creating and aligning services demanded by the business segments to IT resources that are becoming available from other sources (like cloud providers). Internal IT has to compare and compete with new commercial offerings that are often sold directly to the business. IT will see major transformations in delivery and ownership over the next few years, and IT managers need better transparency of the internal costs in order to be relevant/ competitive. There are many cases where IT departments need to act more like profit centers, treating internal users like customers potentially even brokering several service models. New methods of metering, SLA management, chargeback and service flexibility are required.

By attending this webcast, you'll learn how to:

  • Understand the requirements for CIO to really know the true costs of IT
  • Communicate with lines of business internal and external IT delivery and service options
  • Learn not to be seduced by low prices (SaaS, Paas) and communicate and measure total costs of IT
  • Identify, measure and set plans to reduce IT costs
