Information Technology Cost Control

An inordinate amount of IT executive time seems to be expended on measuring and controlling costs rather than focusing resources on IT service and initiatives that will add value to the enterprise, probably because costs are easy to identify and quantify. This is unfortunate as there is a strong correlation between the knowledge growth of an enterprise and its market valuation. It is becoming increasingly important for IT management to ensure that measurement mechanisms are put in place to identify intangible assets such as brand, organization culture, customer loyalty, innovation, knowledge management systems, and the value of staff knowledge.

This set of tools defines the IT infrastructure necessary to provide cost effective IT services. Janco Associates has found that failure to have metrics and service level agreements in place IT organizations are more prone to failure. Metrics are absolutely essential
