Establish ITFM fundamentals

ITFM with spreadsheets or BI tools is not built for speed or organized with a business context to surgically adjust technology investments in real-time. Automating the ingestion and structuring of financial and operational data into an industry-standard cost model enables teams to uncover insights and answer ad hoc questions in minutes, not days or weeks.

Identify optimization opportunities

Lack of confidence in ITFM processes fuels budget padding and a “use it or lose it” mindset that risks misalignment to business priorities. A continuous discipline of cost optimization shifts spend from operational costs to growth opportunities, increases financial agility and accelerates innovation.

Accelerate forecasting cycles

Slow forecasting processes prevent quick reallocations of resources to high ROI investments. Shifting funds where needed while maintaining low variance from plan delivers financial agility and accelerates growth investments.
