Companies around the world face the same problem: Your software is released daily or weekly, but your budget is reviewed quarterly or yearly, leaving a gap in data that ends up slowing down company progress. The struggle to align technology costs to business value in a way that your business and finance teams understand is high, further delaying technology investment decisions.
