Elevating ITFM & TBM to Face the Challenges of 2020 and Beyond
Could the "new normal" push IT's contribution to the back burner? Not a chance! In fact, now is the time to innovate and deliver new value when it's needed most. But that won't be easy if tech leaders don't have a firm grasp on IT spend and how it translates to value.
Elevate ITFM/TBM 2020 provides guidance across three key disciplines:
Short-term Cost Cutting
Evergreen Cost Optimization
Outcome-focused Value Creation
Navigate this year's unique obstacles and beyond with the help of peers and industry experts in this two-day virtual event.

Linking IT budgets and investments to the business’s revenue-producing products and services is the next frontier of ITFM. Today the focus is on managing the cost of IT and calculating the cost of IT-centric services. Looking forward, IT organizations will need to understand how to link IT outputs directly to the business’s revenue-producing products and services. The move to IT value management will change how the business thinks about IT, moving it from a cost center to an integral business partner. This will give the CIO and IT leaders the ability to have meaningful conversations with the business leaders on funding IT budgets and deriving the greatest value for their IT spend. This session will provide a discussion of IT value management concepts and ideas on how to implement them with in your organization.Presented by Chris Dedera, EY
