ITX360 - IT Cost Optimization
Effective IT spend management is not a simple exercise in cost-cutting. The hallmarks of a well crafted IT spend and cost management strategy are:
- Optimization and utilization of current and planned spend.
- Minimizing cost on an on-going basis.
- Alignment of IT spend with the organization’s strategy.
- Informed future planning.
Our ITX360 consulting service delivers on the promise of optimization and cost control with a three-phased approach:
|Identify IT spend.||
|Utilization & alignment assessment.||
|Optimization recommendations and initiatives.||
In addition to the above, we will also assist with designing and deploying guidelines and frameworks to enable on-going IT cost optimization.
Each engagement is unique. Our ITX360 service can be narrowly focused on specific areas, or broadly across all IT spend. Typical areas of IT spend we assist with include, but are not limited to:
- On-premise software.
- Cloud: PaaS / IaaS / SaaS.
- On-premise and data center hardware.
- Recurring hardware and software support.
- IT Security.
- Hosting, Infrastructure and DR.
- IT professional services.
