Tool Procurement Advisory

In 2012, Gartner reports a continuing trend toward the reduction of control IT has over the forces that affect it. Forced to do more with less, many IT departments are inundated and losing the battle.

Technology fatigue is overtaking most enterprises as IT departments scramble to adopt emerging technologies and integrate with legacy investments. The result? Solution sprawl and a bucket full of tools with questionable value.

The Challenge

The speed of technological evolution is only getting faster. Organizations that understand how to effectively utilize new tools will be at a competitive advantage over slower adopters. Determining which investments provide the best value is a difficult decision with many factors. How do you correlate speeds and feeds into solving business needs? ITSM software and supporting infrastructure is rarely cheap but the opportunity cost of “wait and see” can be even more expensive. How can you make use of existing investments while also adopting new technologies?
