  15. 15. Evaluating Level 1 (Procurement) Maturity • Does the organization have consistent processes for IT procurement and contract renegotiation? • How confident is the enterprise that it is getting the best pricing and terms, and how does it validate those assumptions? Where is the organization on Gartner's IT Score Model for Sourcing and Procurement? 14
  16. 16. Evaluating Level 2 (Cost Savings Within IT) Maturity • Has the enterprise compared its IT costs against industry benchmarks? Gartner has the capabilities to assist here. • In which areas is the firm currently working to save IT costs? • What are the biggest drivers of unanticipated IT costs in the enterprise? Where is the organization on Gartner's IT Score Model for Infrastructure and Operations? 15
  17. 17. Evaluating Level 3 (Joint Business and IT Cost Savings) Maturity • How does the enterprise manage its application portfolio and overall demand for IT projects and services? • How do IT leaders work with the business to identify opportunities for IT and the business to lower costs? • Where are the enterprise's best opportunities to work with business stakeholders to reduce costs? Where is the organization on Gartner's IT Score Model for Applications? 16
  18. 18. Key issues 17 • What are the proven practices for optimizing IT spending? • What higher maturity management practices necessary to cut cost the “right” way? • How can IT leaders mitigate the risks of traditional IT cost optimization practices?

Running IT as a Business: Six Pillars of Effective Financial Transparency Pillar 4: Benchmarking Pillar 5: Cost Optimization Pillar 6: Performance Metrics Pillar 1: IT Budgeting Pillar 2: Investment Planning Pillar 3: Chargeback/Showback Running IT as a Business Requires Effective IT Financial Transparency 19
  21. 21. Polling Question #2 Question: Of the remaining Six Pillars for IT financial transparency, what will help the most with cost optimization? A. IT Budgeting B. Investment Planning C. Chargeback/Showback D. Benchmarking E. Performance Metrics 20
  22. 22. IT Cost Optimization Should Be a Discipline • IT cost optimization is not a project; it's a discipline • New opportunities and threats emerge as: - Business imperatives evolve - New technologies mature - IT assets reach the end of their useful lives - New service and delivery options proliferate Our services constantly evolve with clients' changing needs, but our focus on results never changes Evaluate Strategize Execute Optimize Manage Strategize 21
  23. 23. ITCO Program Formulation Establish Baseline Identify Opportunities Develop Strategy Track Benefits • Capture all IT service delivery costs - Current year & 5 year forecast • Categorize by asset class – HW, SW, Personnel, Services, Occup • Allocate into services - establish unit cost baseline for market and business tests • Analyze spend gaps against Market peers • Identify high value opportunities for cost reduction, service improvement and business enablement • Assess benefit against risk to change (as well as time, investment) 1 2 3 4 • Develop strategy & road map for most viable opportunities • Analyze organizational change needs to manage people impact • Create communications plan • Stand up ITCO program office • Monitor, measure & report • Identify opportunities to accelerate while managing out risk 22
  24. 24. 1. Establish Baseline By BU Business Consumption View By Services Productivity measures compliment IT Budget Analysis • Infrastructure • OS Instances per FTE • TB Storage per FTE • Handled Contacts per Client Service Rep • Applications • Function points per Developer • Defects per Thousand Function Points Chargeback / Showback Complete the Gartner IT Budget Tool to help establish an initial baseline (view at left). Such views (options below) help form insights from which to better manage IT Spend and set context for IT cost optimization efforts.

  25. 25. 2. Identify Opportunities & Assess Viability For each opportunity generated: • What's the upside? • Is it worth the effort? Benefits Small Medium Large >18 months 6-18 months <6 months High; impacts OS, DB, middleware and applications Moderate; impacts few components of the architecture Low; Little more than "moving boxes" High; Staff redundancies, and re-engineering of processes and structures Moderate; Limited changes in roles, structures and processes Low; No staff reduction, nor changes in organization and processes High Moderate Low/None Negative None Positive Potential Benefit - How big is the saving if the action is implemented and how does it affect cash flow? Time Requirement - Can you capture the savings in this fiscal year? Degree of IT Technical Risk - Is there a risk that the change will undermine the ability of your systems to deliver? Degree of Organizational Risk - Will your leaders ensure the changes are made? Is your organization capable of adapting to the changes? Investment Requirement - Does the change require a large upfront investment before savings can be captured? Is the organization willing to make an investment at all? Business Impact - What impact will this have on the Business? Benefits Costs, Time and Risks ? 24

  30. 30. The New Game-Face For IT Leaders: Transparency • Accountability is ultimately more important than cost cutting • Culture change is incidental to change in transparency • If you can‟t cut, you can‟t innovate • The frustration of transparency creates innovation • Become an offensive IT organization 29

  34. 34. Perspectives: Why Shared IT Services Succeeds or Fails Why It‟s Successful • Roadmap for Change • Communication Plan • Highest Level Support • IT Financial Management • Creation of IT Service Catalogs • External Benchmarking • Integration of IT Management Process Silos • Acceptance of External Sourcing Options Why It Fails • Funding Model Does Not Change • Chargeback is Too Basic • No Policies on Use of Shared Service Center and Exception Allowances • Technical Staff Repurposed to IT Business Management Roles • Strategic Objectives Devoid of Shared Services • No Relationship Managers 33
  35. 35. Polling Question #3 Question: What is the biggest risk from bad or misguided cost optimization efforts? A. IT spending will increase due to centralization B. Service levels for mission critical systems will be hurt C. Decentralized IT spending will increase D. Cutting will continue in the following years E. IT management costs will increase 34
  36. 36.

  38. 38. The Cost of IT Cost Transparency & Running IT Like a Business: Office of the CIO Staffing (%) • 13% of IT staff are OCIO staff. • Median number of CIOs, CTOs and COOs is 1.0. • OCIO excludes IT staffing in PMO, apps or infrastructure areas. • Many roles may shift out of OCIO to PMO, corporate mgmt., lines of business or elsewhere in IT. • By 2015, enterprises with long-term IT cost transparency initiatives will increase the size of the CIO team by 25% and cut IT costs by 25%. • IT consolidation and shared services fail long term, due to lack of transparency. 5 6 6 7 7 7 7 7 8 8 9 10 13 Strategic planning Governance Change mgmt.

  40. 40. Wrap-Up and Recommendations  Improve relevant IT financial transparency elements before you need them.  Use IT financial transparency as a cultural change agent for IT staff and business stakeholders.  Use benchmarking for big changes in the enterprise; use measurement to sustain the big changes.  If you didn‟t or don‟t like the way you have to cut costs now, then use IT service portfolios and catalogs to do it the right way next time.  Improving or implementing one IT financial transparency element is tactical; changing three is “strategic.”  Run IT like a business means improvement in IT financial management and performance management processes and the attitude of a vendor. 39
