The growing need for improving the cost visibility of IT services has further highlighted the importance of a strong relationship between the CIO and the CFO, according to Alsbridge Inc., a benchmarking, sourcing and transformation advisory firm. The firm will share insights on the importance of the visibility of IT costs in organizations and the repercussions it has on the CIO-CFO relationship, through the eSeminar What the CIO can deliver to the CFO, on October 17th, 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM E.T.
Alsbridge managing director, Katherine Rudd says “The ability to mine data and derive insights into the cost of IT services has highlighted the importance of a strong relationship between the CIO and the CFO.” “The effectiveness of the working relationship between these executives can provide benefits to the organization that drive key objectives for the business.”
Join Katharine for an eSeminar on the growing importance of visibility to the cost of IT and how it is creating an evolution of the relationship between the CIO and CFO.
Attendees will learn how to:
- Evaluate the true cost for services and how it impacts the IT budget
- Link IT to corporate strategy
- Utilize inventory and analysis tools
- Leverage an analysis of technology and cost alternatives
- Utilize the business case for cost reduction and technology investment
“The systems used to track information for the finance organization provide different information than those systems used to track information for IT,” says Katherine. “Neither provides the level of visibility necessary to ensure that money is being spent effectively to drive technology investment and the best price for IT services,” she adds.
