IT Financial Management and Cost Transparency (US)

Leading IT organizations view themselves as a service providers, striving to meet the needs of their business partners across multiple areas including applications, infrastructure, communications, projects, and the like. However, in many cases the finance processes used to capture, allocate, and analyze IT costs have not kept pace with the maturation of the IT operating model. This can make it difficult, if not impossible, for the IT function to provide transparent cost reporting to the business and have meaningful planning conversations based on desired service levels and other cost drivers. The PwC IT Financial Management (ITFM) & Cost Transparency app helps embed leading practices into your ITFM processes and improve process efficiency, cost transparency, and IT financial planning. The app helps automate the core processes needed to build-up unit costs for discrete IT services tailored your company’s specific IT service catalog. The app also supports allocation or chargeback of IT costs to the appropriate business target based on the methodology you define. The app also provides powerful tools to plan and analyze IT costs across multiple scenarios. Leverage the PwC IT Financial Management (ITFM) & Cost Transparency app to help build a better working relationship with your business partners, have more meaningful IT cost conversations, and clearly articulate the value you deliver to the business.
