Help IT Departments Run Like a Business l

Actually entitled ” Apptio Helps IT Departments Run Like a Business ,” this article touches on the emerging SW platform choices in the TBM, or ITBFM, space.  Apptio was early out, along with Digital Fuel*, and has since been joined by firms which are still still around (e.g ComSci) or those who aren’t (e.g. Costnomics).  

Regardless of which software is used, per the ex-CIO of Hilton, “Fundamentally, the vision…to leverage cloud-based services to run IT as a business is absolutely critical for all CIOs these days.”

That’s why TBM-readiness and TBM-maturity assessments are so valuable; they can help a CIO start defining their “next steps” and prepare for a short-term POC to understand what value they should expect from TBM.
