Business Transformation Drives IT Cost Inflation
Combating Inflationary Forces
The rapid pace of technology-enabled transformation puts enormous stress on an organization’s ability to control technology spend. Traditional procurement approaches to cost containment are overwhelmed by modern sales practices driven by all IT solution providers and amplified by the user’s need for innovation and speed. New business models, unclear governance, increased switching costs, and the move to subscription-based pricing for embedded solutions only adds fuel to IT suppliers’ ability to extract more revenue from their customers.
This new environment elevates the role of the IT deal-maker to a strategic business partner, as they work to provide crucial cost optimization and risk mitigation services to technology and business stakeholders, all while balancing their organization’s need to speed. The solution is clear, organizations must adopt an enterprise-wide approach to managing leverage and competing with their IT suppliers.
