Innovation is the name of the game for the growth of today's enterprise. But how do you continue to innovate despite the constraints of reduced IT budgets? How do you identify and overcome the inefficiencies in enterprise architectures that increase costs and constrain growth?

Join Brian Pagano and Tom Weeks to discuss a framework on how to cut costs for enterprise IT. Learn to identify areas of operational savings in your business so that you can invest in and accelerate the projects that matter.

Join to Discuss:

- IT rationalization via cost savings and cost avoidance
- Combating the complexity of multiple teams, data repositories, and formats
- Hidden areas of operational savings
- Normalizing access to back-end systems via a uniform and consumable API
