Technology Cost Transformation

Technology Cost Transformation facilitates the identification, classification, reporting and ultimately the optimisation of IT costs; allowing enterprises to achieve and maintain cost competitiveness. IT cost management is a discipline which aims to ensure efficiency, agility, and competitiveness of the IT organisation, leading to cost frameworks which support Business growth and Risk appetite. ‘Winning firms’ will have optimised the supply side of IT costs, demonstrated the value of technology to stakeholders and have achieved symbiosis between technology assets and Business growth.

Our recent research has looked at how the best-of-breed companies have handled ‘IT Costs in the New Normal' and how incorporating continuous cost optimisation has provided competitive advantage.

Your challenges

To achieve IT Cost Optimisation, most organisations are faced with one of more of the following challenges:

  • Senior Management does not have full visibility of overall costs across the Business functions making strategic decisions challenging or even impossible
  • Minimal understanding and control of acquisition costs, operating costs and resources costs across the business functions
  • Increasing 3rd Party Supplier costs
  • Lack of associated tools or processes to identify key IT Costs
  • Increased Legacy and Technical Debt
  • No overall Cost Control Governance
  • Minimal Management Information even for departmental attributable costs
