PANEL DISCUSSION | Developing an Effective Technology Business Management (TBM)

Many IT Sourcing strategies start (and end) with analysis of IT spend metrics. While it is good to develop a comprehensive view of IT actuals, TBM can be used do for further analysis rather than an endpoint. This panel discusses why a good IT Sourcing strategy should include TBM and how it can be used to measure the real IT Value.

- What drives variance?
- Which cost centers are outliers?
- Which parts of IT are poorly optimised?
- How do you bring down your IT spend?
- Are you paying too much for ICT services?
- Are you buying more ICT than you need?
- If you answered yes, what should you be paying and buying, why, and how do you ensure you are getting maximum value out of your IT deals?
