Software exposé

What is IT Financial Management?

Digital business models, new challenges: A development that particularly affects the IT organisation of companies. Until recently, IT was a service provider on call, but in the future it will play an active role in shaping business. The age of the IT manufacture is ending - that of the IT service provider with economic responsibility is beginning. This means that the role of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) is changing. Until now, the CIO was primarily a technology manager. The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and IT controlling monitored him in terms of economic efficiency and supported him in investment decisions. The disruption of digital business models, however, now also requires the CIO to have IT financial management (ITFM) skills. In future, it will be part of the armoury of every CIO - he must now be able to manage IT in an entrepreneurial way.

ITFM as a decision-making perspective

In the course of digitalisation, IT has to provide more and more services faster and more flexibly. Consequently, the requirements for internal service provision are also changing. The strategy for service provision is becoming more complex. Technologies such as cloud solutions, software as a service or managed service providers can be helpful in the context of outsourcing or outtasking, but the question here is how much IT will be provided by the organisation itself in the future?

What is the optimal vertical range of manufacture in terms of performance, service and costs? Make-or-buy decisions are part of daily business. Here it is no longer enough for a CIO to retreat to the question of the right, future-proof technology. This is where IT financial management comes in.

The four central pillars of the ITFM

  • Column #1: Investments and strategic planning
  • Column #2: Asset management, capital requirements planning and CAPEX & OPEX consideration
  • Column #3: Cost and performance optimisation through benchmarking
  • Column #4: Determine service catalogue, service costs and service prices for the business

CIO Cockpit
