Please join American Express, Apptio and Decision Lens for this AZTC Lunch and Learn to hear how companies are driving strategic alignment between business and IT and automating and optimizing the process to provide analytic insight for executive decision makers.
Just as sales has CRM and finance has ERP, today’s IT leaders require Technology Business Management (TBM) to create and communicate business value. Apptio pioneered the TBM category and today hundreds of Global 10,000 organizations (more than 40% of the Fortune 100) trust Apptio as their system of record for technology investments. Apptio partnered with Decision Lens to enhance decision making around those technology investments and ensure alignment with business priorities.
American Express is leveraging TBM practices to manage and control IT expenses as volumes increase with company growth, and to support new and expanding technologies like Big Data. American Express is in the middle of a multi-year transformation strategy to increase the productivity and operating efficiency of their technology organization. The company also recently announced it is moving aggressively to streamline the company and drive efficiencies, cutting costs by $1 billion by the end of 2017 to help accelerate business growth. They are using TBM techniques, in part, to help achieve those goals.
