IT efficiency practical recommendations
Globally over the past five years $8 trillion has been spent on IT, which is more than half the US GDP. Unfortunately, 70-80 percent of each year’s IT budget is spent on IT maintenance. CIOs need to run today’s IT environments like businesses – delivering better levels of service at lower costs.
To cut costs and improve satisfaction, IT leaders must become more efficient with their IT budgets, use of IT resources, and the selection of IT devices and applications. As cloud computing and the consumerization of IT erodes boundaries from the data center to the desktop, empowered employees can act on their technology needs without involving the IT department. There is also a tremendous opportunity for organizations to become IT efficient and to make “going green” more profitable.
