Showback and Chargeback
Drive shared accountability of technology spend
Efficiently Plan, Track, and Influence Consumption
Despite the predicted economic slow-down over the coming year, companies can still thrive and grow — if they can respond quickly to the changing landscape.
A showback or chargeback strategy creates a shared responsibility for technology costs. Showback provides business units with an understanding of what makes up the single line item of expense they call “IT” and shows them how to make changes in the costs or improve the business output. Chargeback takes those insights into the realm of direct responsibility by ensuring that the consumers of technology are also those paying the bill. These practices can ensure that all business units are making decisions with the fully burdened costs of technology in mind.
