The need for greater agility, the move toward self-service, and the need to manage mobile devices are putting new pressures on CIOs to align IT spend with changing business priorities. Toward that goal, many organizations have deployed a first generation of IT Cost Transparency and Cost Visibility solutions —with some great successes, some spectacular failures, and many projects that never achieved the CIO’s vision.
This webcast will focus on the critical steps that make IT Cost Transparency projects successful, as well as the missteps that should be avoided to reduce the risk of failure. Industry luminary, William Miller, who implemented one of the most successful IT Cost Transparency initiatives at Nationwide Insurance, will look at why some of these projects have been very successful while others have failed.
Key Objectives of the Webinar:
- Find out how to design success into your process to achieve the objectives of transparency and automation
- Understand why cost models are one of the most critical parts of any transparency endeavor—and why inflexible models may cause project stagnation or failure
- Learn how to begin and plan a cost transparency project—what can be achieved in 6 months, 12 months and 18 months
