  • How to optimize run-the-business spending by optimizing the infrastructure.
  • Creating transparency to empower decision makers, demonstrating cost efficiency.


For many CIOs, the value they provide is elusive. It’s not that they don’t create positive business results, it’s that they have difficulty demonstrating value for the money spent. As a result, many IT leaders find themselves trapped in a vicious circle of defending their budgets, cutting resources when times are tight and struggling to keep up with an insatiable entrepreneurial appetite for innovation. Meanwhile, corporate leaders are increasingly relying on the cloud and other third parties for their technological needs, finding clear trade-offs between costs, features, risk and speed of delivery. CIOs don’t just have to compete with these alternatives, they have to embrace the new reality of a multi-sourced, service-oriented world. Many IT leaders are taking a more proactive approach to optimizing value. Using shared facts on costs, consumption, quality, risk and performance, hundreds of CIOs have enhanced valuable conversations focused on cost-per-performance portfolio, aligned business, investments in innovation and business agility. The compromises they illuminated changed the tone of their meetings and instilled an entrepreneurial mindset in IT decisions.
