Delivering Cost Transparency and Clarity

US federal agencies spend upwards of $78 billion each year on IT infrastructure and services. Yet until recently, there’s been no way to account for what that spending achieved for their mission in business terms. IT and agency leaders, financial officers, program managers, and elected officials have lacked a universal language that can translate the performance requirements of federal IT into the language of financial management.

Without this language, agencies don't know which of their investments are the most productive; legislators are unable to make informed decisions about future IT spending priorities and constituents don't know what they've bought with their tax dollars.


A Strategic Management System for IT

Apptio delivers a single, seamless approach to measure and report IT performance in business terms for government decision-makers. Gain the insights needed to align IT spending with legislative priorities, management objectives and mission outcomes.

Apptio’s TBM applications deliver insights into the cost, quality and value of public-sector IT investments through powerful business analytics. Mapping disparate data feeds across programs, agencies and missions into a single unbiased view, Apptio provides decision-makers with defensible data, bringing new perspectives of the full monetary impact of agency IT investments.

Technology Business Management and FITARA

The Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA) provides CIOs with more authority over the budget, governance and personnel processes for agency IT investments by improving transparency and review processes. This will require more reporting and active decision-making.

Our TBM methodology is derived from the experiences and best practices of hundreds of customers, and our partnership as technical advisor to the TBM Council, an organization comprised of more than 1,500 leading CIOs, CFOs and IT executives.
