Identify your top cost optimization initiatives for IT

Prioritize your IT organization’s cost initiatives by business outcomes/value

Gartner decision frameworks enable you, through a combination of scoring and executive judgment, to identify key cost optimization initiatives to implement over time.

  • Assess the level of impact across six decision factors/criteria (e.g., financial impact, risk). 
  • Evaluate the trade-offs between the benefits, costs, risk and viability of cost optimization initiatives. 
  • Map your cost optimization initiatives on a simple grid to show the trade-offs and build buy-in.
