Manage Through Disruption with Smarter IT Spending

Take a more strategic, programmatic approach to IT cost optimization

Cost optimization goes beyond cost cutting

To maximize cost savings, IT leaders should pursue cost optimization through both function-specific and enterprise-wide programs. Cost optimization is a business-focused, continuous discipline intended to maximize business value while reducing costs.

Prioritize your cost initiatives by business value

Urgent budget pressure is real, but the goal remains to make short- and midterm cost decisions that enable you to adjust to and sustain through unknown scenarios — without jeopardizing your long-term health and strategic objectives.

The results in the past couple of years have just been amazing. We are two years ahead of schedule on our cost optimization commitments and essentially declared victory on that chapter of the program this year — and the original goal was 2021.
