Source and aggregate service demand from business units
IT finance and resource owners must either project the future consumption—and associated costs—of their resources, or source the demand for those resources from business units directly. A standardized, shared framework quickly captures demand directly from business units and eliminates siloed, error-prone spreadsheets.
Plan, track, and influence consumption
Low confidence in forecasted service demand burdens the IT budget with excessive contingency or over-provisioned infrastructure. Tracking consumption and understanding the impact of demand changes on costs and unit rates, reduces budget padding and waste from over-provisioning.
Improve unit rate accuracy
Inaccurate unit rates leads to showback uncertainty. Comparing actual unit rates to both budgeted rates and rates in the most recent forecast increases unit rate accuracy.
