Session description
Of late, buzzwords such as 'actionable service catalog' are gaining ground. However, no service catalog is complete without accurate costing. Increasing economic demands hold Information Technology (IT) accountable for reducing costs. Cost catalogs enable enterprises to plan and manage IT costs through accurate benchmarking and cost benefit analysis. This session identifies the cost levers that translate into cost effectiveness and improved processes.
