Managing IT through the downturn

Managing your cost base is fundamental to managing through the downturn.

In the majority of organisations, IT is a significant cost. As companies look to achieve significant, rapid reductions, the IT function is coming under increasing pressure to:

  • Reduce its operational costs
  • Reduce discretionary spend
  • Provide the tools and infrastructure to help the business do more with less.
This paper explores our approach to cost reduction which is underpinned by a framework that addresses strategy, structure, people, processes as well as technology. By looking at all five dimensions, we can help you to identify tangible, sustainable opportunities to reduce cost and support the delivery of an IT service which genuinely supports value creation and provides a flexible platform for supporting future growth.
