MAXIMIZE VALUE FROM IT INVESTMENTS

Helping IT Investment Professionals During COVID-19 and Beyond

Maximize Value From IT Investments

Today it is widely accepted that Information Technology is transforming business, and in some cases, transforming entire industries.

Expectations of investors, boards, finance, and business executives have changed. Organizations across all industries demand strategic value from their IT investments and expect IT to be a Value Driver - no longer just a Cost Center.

At the same time, there are many more ways to consume Information Technology than ever before. Gone are the days when information services could be provisioned exclusively through time-consuming and big-budget CapEx projects. Virtualization, private and public Clouds, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Managed Service Providers (MSP), and Software-Defined infrastructure (SD-x) are just a few among many options of "IT-as-a-Service."

With so much change over the last 20 years, how much has changed in how you manage IT investments?

  • Has it changed to the same degree as financial investment management with electronic trading and tools like Bloomberg Terminal for investment professionals?

  • Has it changed to the same degree as software development with agile methodology and tools like Atlassian Confluence/Jira for software developers?

Our customer research tells us that the answer is “no.”

Our problem hypothesis is that Information Technology (IT) must be a value driver.

  • Driving value requires collaboration, alignment, and accountability across all value stakeholders.

  • Driving value requires advanced sourcing strategies as today's IT has shifted to orchestrating externally provided OPEX services.

  • Driving value requires continually improving unitized total cost-to-serve, not solely reducing IT cost components.

IT investment professionals are constrained today by data and tools that still treat IT strictly as a cost center as opposed to empowering them to run IT as a value driver.

Our mission is to help organizations maximize value from IT investments by adopting Agile Investment Management to run IT as a value driver. We strive to make it easier to benefit from proven best practices in value management, strategic sourcing, and service costing.

Our goal is to empower IT investment professionals to accelerate decision-making, generate more value, and reduce cost-to-serve by providing better data and tools through our cloud software and our executive roundtable.

Our cloud software is a platform for IT investment management. We bring together an Investment Management Application with Investment Intelligence Data and an Investment Community Network - all running on an innovative technology platform.

Our executive roundtable is a peer forum to pool expertise and investment power. We enable organizations to join forces for mutual benefit - researching and investing together where advantageous. And we offer exclusive privileges to the founding members.

Our vision is to become the world’s largest platform for IT investment management with $100B annual IT investments under management across 2000 organizations of any size and industry within the next ten years.

We aspire to be for IT investment professionals what Bloomberg Terminal is for financial investment professionals and Atlassian Confluence/Jira is for software developers.

We believe COVID-19 is a catalyst for IT Investment professionals to upgrade their IT investment management tools and processes to rapidly capture cost reduction opportunities and reprioritize investments to enable digital transformation
