Analyze. Optimize. Plan.
ApptioOne unifies financial and operational data into a unified model built on the industry-standard taxonomy of cost categorization. Utilizing sophisticated allocation rules along with focused metrics and KPIs, we enable organizations to answer the most strategic questions about investments and accelerate budgeting and forecasting processes. By explaining investments and variance to plan more quickly to constituencies and executive management, organizations can uncover opportunities to optimize cost structures, reduce risk, and accelerate growth.
- Uncover insights to accelerate decisions in minutes, not days or weeks.
- Answer ad-hoc questions about costs 95% faster.
- Plan 75% faster and quickly reallocate resources to high ROI investments.
- Establish ITFM Fundamentals
Implement a structured view of IT expenses for actuals and plans based on industry-standard framework to allow for faster ad hoc analysis and budgeting cycles.
- Optimize Cost Structures
Lower overall IT spend by reducing waste, eliminating duplications, and aligning investments to strategic priorities.
- Accelerate Forecasting Cycles
Reduce the time spent forecasting, accelerate frequency, and redirect resources to higher-value activities.
Reduced budget variance down to 1% in their capital budget, freeing up $20-30M annually for the business.
Reduced annual planning time from 15 to 4 weeks and produced monthly forecasts to understand and monitor variance.
Establish ITFM fundamentals
ITFM with spreadsheets or BI tools is not built for speed or organized with a business context to surgically adjust technology investments in real-time. Automating the ingestion and structuring of financial and operational data into an industry-standard cost model enables teams to uncover insights and answer ad hoc questions in minutes, not days or weeks.
Identify optimization opportunities
Lack of confidence in ITFM processes fuels budget padding and a “use it or lose it” mindset that risks misalignment to business priorities. A continuous discipline of cost optimization shifts spend from operational costs to growth opportunities, increases financial agility and accelerates innovation.
Accelerate forecasting cycles
Slow forecasting processes prevent quick reallocations of resources to high ROI investments. Shifting funds where needed while maintaining low variance from plan delivers financial agility and accelerates growth investments.
