Topic: Achieving IT Cost Optimization and Business Intelligence – A Financial Management for IT Services Solution Seminar
When: August 23, 2010
Where: Hilton Harrisburg Hotel • Harrisburg, PA
Time: 8:00am till noon
This workshop session will guide you through an innovative new Information Technology (IT) cost modeling approach. The workshop will show you how an IT organization can get away from reactive, unscientific guesswork. This is done by implementing the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) framework’s IT Financial Management practices to predict current and future keep-the-lights-on activities and costs, and the impact of change.
During the workshop participants will learn how to effectively implement the ITIL framework’s IT Financial Management disciplines around a capacity based planning model approach that:
- aligns IT workload activities to business needs,
- defines IT workload drivers and related activity cost, and
- provides the capability to quickly and accurately define current costs and to estimate the impact of change.
Fortunately, the Financial Management guidelines and best practices for IT Services documented in the ITIL framework don’t require an implementation of all disciplines. This means that you can take advantage of IT Financial Management best practices now, even if you have not yet (or only recently) initiated ITIL.Tags:ABC, Capacity Based Costing, Charge Back, chargeback, COp-S, Cost Allocation, Cost Optimization, Cost Reduction, Financial Management for IT Service, FMITS, IT Charge Back, IT Cost Optimization, IT Financial Management, IT Service Costing, IT Service Management, ITFM, ITFMA, ITIL Financial Management Dallas, ITSM, Service Catalog, Service Costing, Showback, SUM, TCO, Total Cost of Ownership
