To better understand the value of IT investments, First Citizens Bank needed new tools for planning and analysis. Using a combination of Apptio Cost Transparency®, Apptio Benchmarking®, and Apptio IT Planning®, the IT team was able to apply a much greater level of scrutiny to infrastructure, servers, personal computing, and other areas—greatly improving the team’s ability to identify areas of opportunity. The result is an enhanced ability to understand the true cost of growth and new opportunities to free up dollars for grow-the-business initiatives. Apptio IT Planning plays a big role in helping the team more ef ciently manage run-the- business spend to help achieve this goal.
A key corporate goal is to ‘do the right thing.’ We’ve always focused on this. Apptio IT Planning has allowed us to find new cost savings so we can still do the right thing and not run over budget.
