Effective IT leaders want to fully support the needs and goals of their business partners. They can’t do that and also meet their obligation to wisely allocate scarce IT funds unless they are able to identify and remediate the estimated 30% of technology spend that is wasted. Rapidly increasing cloud spending makes their job harder as easy-to-provision SaaS applications—often acquired by business units without IT input—create expensive annual contracts with little or no governance. IT leaders need insight and solutions to identify technology spend optimization opportunities.
Spend Optimizer enables organizations to right-size their technology investments by aligning spend with business need across software, cloud services, datacenter, and mobile. Detailed technology use understanding is mined to identify unused accounts, duplicate users, and unnecessary, expensive subscriptions. Automatic categorization of hundreds of thousands of applications drives portfolio rationalization by identifying overlapping technologies. Spend Optimizer provides IT leaders the tools they need to ensure efficient use of budget and resources.
