Event description

Description

IT Finance professionals are only beginning to understand the levers that affect cloud Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and how to evaluate cloud efficiency and ROI over the long haul. Thinking in terms of long-term financial value is difficult, but CFOs want hard proof of the cost savings and efficiencies promised by the cloud.

Gone are the days of “use case” thinking for IT leaders – it’s all about the “business case” now. ClearEdge has observed that experienced IT finance leaders run IT like a business, not simply a service (or cost) center, and take a holistic, financially-grounded approach to determine TCO. Consumption-based IT requires a different set of financial inspection tools; it’s an annuity spend – not a finite purchase.

Join us in Palo Alto on September 6th as we share proven strategies to get a better handle on cloud TCO, and to guard against expensive surprises down the road. Our interactive presentation will be delivered by ClearEdge CIO and Managing Partner Chris White, a former IT CFO and expert at identifying the financial benefits of taking a programatic approach to IT investment.
