You’ve probably heard a lot of chatter about the chargeback-versus-showback debate. Perhaps you’ve developed strong opinions about the appropriateness of one over the other. Or perhaps you’re on the fence. Hear lessons learned on how to overcome internal resistance, bust misconceptions, and demystify the two models by:

• Measuring the largest drivers of service consumption to derive IT costs and understand cost levers
• Ensuring chargeback is integrated with finance and/or accounting systems

If you don’t know where you’re going with ITFM, you won’t get anywhere! It’s important to know what you’re trying achieve, to question your assumptions, and to be flexible in the face of setbacks.

• Get the business to put “skin in the game”
• Take a hard look at your your data: it may be very ugly
