Service Cost Tracking in ITSM
The Missing Link Between IT Service Quality and Business Value
Most IT organizations can report the quality of a service and detail IT budgets along departmental or asset lines. However, the cost of providing a service as it is actually consumed by the organization is largely an unknown. This operational blind spot is the missing link when trying to determine the business value of a service. This EMA eBook shows how 4me bridges the great divide between IT service and corporate finance with a simple-to-use IT financial management capability that was built into its ITSM/ESM solution from the start.
