Financial Transparency
A major component of IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) is the ability to understand and manage the costs associated with delivering IT services. With cloud computing and ITaaS opening new doors, IT organizations are better positioned to speed service delivery and support the dynamic needs of the business.
Both IT and the business have a high stake in ensuring that a financially transparent model is incorporated into ITaaS–from allocating and defining costs and service prices to measuring demand and consumption–all while continually communicating across IT, finance, and the business. Financial transparency is a key driving force for organizations to elevate the importance of thinking through services and delivering them with efficiency and a balance between demand and supply.
