The emergence of Cloud and SaaS options have shattered the IT monopoly, forcing CIOs to become a competitive service provider and prove their value to the business. Now more than ever, CIOs require a technology business management system to run the business of IT if they are to keep their seat at the table.  This perfect storm brewing in today’s IT environment makes this event  ideal for CIOs, consultants, programmers, application developers, managers, analysts, software engineers, enterprise architects and information technology professionals, as well as educators, faculty, staff and students in IT project management and computer or information sciences.

Attendees of the no charge event will learn how Apptio can:

1. Increase Visibility into the cost and performance of your services and applications to provide a comprehensive view into your fully loaded costs.
2. Identify Cost Reduction Opportunities and quantify the financial impact (ROI) of IT investments.
3. Effectively communicate the value that IT brings the business by delivering a Bill of IT to each line of business that reflects the cost, usage and value of each IT Service they consume.
4. Automate and align the Budgeting and Forecasting Process to IT Services to gain real time visibility into your budget variances by IT Service, plan for future demand, and proactively reconcile variances with your General Ledger before they impact your Profit & Loss Statement.

Seating is limited. RSVP at www.HarrisburgU.edu/RSVP
