Apptio for Service and Application Owners

Service and application owners at Bank of America, Cisco, The Clorox Company, JPMorgan Chase, Microsoft, NBCUniversal and other leading enterprises employ Apptio Technology Business Management (TBM) to balance cost and quality of service delivery and demonstrate value and competitiveness.

"In a lot of ways Apptio helps us break the barrier between IT and finance…it really allows us to perform analytics at a level that we weren’t able to before. It allows us to get a lot more granular in the way they were assigning any given cost line item onto a product or service and report on what that looks like throughout the year."
