Pessimistic CFOs Must Make the Most of IT Spend

Share Article

Pessimistic CFOs will be demanding increased rigor on the request/approval process, which will be the impetus for obtaining accurate and thorough Usage Monitoring. Real ROI can be found with usage monitoring as part of the discovery and inventory of IT assets. Eracent's Usage Option offers a comfort zone for the decision to purchase.

Tightly monitored IT spending is the most likely consequence of CFO pessimism reported in the CFO Survey published by Duke University and CFO Magazine. While spending is expected to grow by 4.1%, the overall pessimism reflected in the survey points to an increased requirement to monitor the environments. Eracent, a global provider of IT asset management solutions, is announcing real ROI through the Usage Option of the Enterprise Asset Management™ solution.

"Forward-thinking CFOs are ready to invest to keep their edge or gain an advantage against the competition through technology. We can help you prevent spending on the wrong things," stated Walter Szablowski, president of Eracent. "Analyzing real usage of applications, servers and other IT equipment almost always yields surprises."

Usage monitoring that goes beyond open and closes of applications is an advantage offered by EnterpriseAM, Eracent's premier discovery solution. Instead of presenting a request to the CFO for a new server, usage monitoring provides the analytic backup to prove the activity levels that justify the new expense.

"This approach gives a comfort zone to the CFO that IT has done their homework," stated Szablowski. "But the days of doing usage monitoring later or optionally are rapidly ending. It is time to step up the activities that rid the organization of misguided purchases."
