IT Business Management
Running IT like a business
IT as a function stopped being ‘just overhead’ a long time ago. More and more the business is asking for the most value out of their money spent on IT. Since most applications are available in the cloud and can be purchased by any single business unit by simply using their own credit card, your own IT department needs to deliver IT services better, faster and with a higher level of quality and control.
You need to operate your IT department as a business, demonstrating value to their customers.
The ITBM processes enable you to better prioritize work coming your way, forecast delivery of value to the business and track all work both in the pipeline and in-flight. Project Portfolio Management insights will help you build and communicate your IT roadmap showing also opportunities for other departments by being able to leverage capabilities delivered to others earlier.
ITBM is not just around delivering value and the right insights to the business stakeholders, it’s also around making sure you deliver efficiently and cost effective.
How many applications do you have in house? What capabilities do they deliver? Is there an overlap and are there perhaps applications you still pay licenses for, but nobody is actually using? A great example how ITBM processes can help you save money being flushed down the drain which otherwise nobody would even know about.
At Odysseus we have the process and tool experts available to help you deliver more value to your business stakeholders as well as to your IT department itself. Whether it is to guide you in de setup of your application portfolio management foundation, implementing resource capacity planning processes or show you how to build a good roadmap having both the opportunity pipeline and projects in flight covered, we have the experience on the good but also bad practices…
