The Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA) seeks to provide CIOs more authority over the budget for agency IT investments.
This will require greater cost transparency for some $78 billion in annual IT spend, which wasn’t previously possible due to the lack of a standard framework for IT costs.
A Standard Framework for Federal IT Costs
The Apptio® TBM Unified Model™ or (ATUM™) is a standard model that describes what data is needed for cost calculations, how to organize it into IT terms, and how to route and apportion costs through the IT supply chain. In the new age of FITARA, ATUM can help leaders manage the business of IT more effectively and provide greater cost transparency.
At the core of ATUM, pioneered by the Technology Business Management Council (TBM), is the industry standard framework of IT functions and resources endorsed by the TBM Council. Apptio is the only company with TBM taxonomy built into the product, to help federal CIOs achieve their objectives and meet the mandate.
