part of a TBM focus – Path to a Successful ITFBM Initiative: Part 1 of 3 – Getting Started | ComSci IT Finance Blog

The Path to a Successful ITFBM Initiative: Part 1 of 3 – Getting Started | ComSci IT Finance Blog is the first blog in a three-part series from Jeff Yoder, VP at ComSCI, an IT Financial and Business Management (ITFBM) SaaS provider.

Think of them as a SaaS platform for implementing the cost transparency required for TBM (Technology Business Management) initiatives.

Since ITconnecter’s singular focus as part of CrossWaves Ventures is on helping CIOs implement TBM, we are now investigating companies such as ComSCI, Apptio and ServiceNow.  Our objective is to learn how they complement each other, or compete with each other and where each “fits” as a TBM technology for CIOs, based upon each IT organization’s specific business requirements and use cases (e.g. ITIL, ITSM, TBM maturity indices).

The rest of Jeff’s blog can be viewed at .
