Learn how the anafee Software Solutions Suite can be deployed to properly address the challenges of IT Financial Management.
The Importance of IT Financial Management
If you want to successfully run a business, and of course you do, it is vital to address the three key challenges of IT Financial Management:
- Justification of expenses to customers and business executives alike
- Optimization of service costs as well as understanding key service cost components
- Providing proper transfer pricing documentation in the interest of tax compliance
IT Financial Management (or Technology Business Management) responds to these challenges by helping to manage the technology and expenditures of businesses. Its aim is to provide both IT organizations and businesses with a common platform to measure their services. That way they can better plan for future investments. Ultimately, this will improve IT services as well as the advancement of business performance.
