12:00 PM WORKSHOP B: BUDGETING & PLANNING FOR MAXIMUM BUSINESS IMPACT

Most IT departments, already stretched thin, are under overwhelming pressure to “do more with less” – to cut costs while maintaining existing infrastructure and services and supporting business transformation goals. But because there’s little visibility into the true costs of IT or the link between IT services and business value, the typical outcome is a budget that’s misaligned with business strategy and ITFM allows for more rational budgeting by basing the inevitable trade-offs on data and facts. In this session, learn how to:

• Encourage buy-in by focusing on metrics that business leaders care about
• Get granular – but not too granular – to support your requests
• Use the budget as a communication tool – to convey the business value of IT spend and build credibility
