Frequently Asked Questions About Techniques for Reducing IT Costs
San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2008
Digital Fuel®, the leader in IT Service Management (ITSM) solutions, today announced relief for enterprises that want to rapidly cut IT costs. At a time when every company is looking to streamline spending, Digital Fuel is leading the way by offering companies insight into where and how to save IT dollars today and in the future.
"There is a lack of visibility into IT costs and IT service utilization in many organizations which results in businesses creating redundancies and not optimizing their investment in IT," said Barbara Gomolski, Managing Vice President, at Gartner Inc. "By providing real-time and ongoing visibility into IT spend and cost drivers, organizations can significantly reduce IT spend--often by as much as 15%* or more--simply by identifying and cutting out duplication and waste." However, locating and isolating this excess is a challenging task. Digital Fuel addresses this problem head-on by providing enterprises with instant insight into IT cost drivers -- unnecessary spend and service usage, poorly utilized IT spend, and avoidable cost over runs.
Digital Fuel's award winning ServiceFlow software solution provides this important insight with unique capabilities that map business services to their underlying components and costs. Furthermore, by making IT costs transparent, ServiceFlow allows IT to continuously drive down costs on an on-going basis and focus IT spend on services that deliver real business value. The solution is available as a hosted service or on-premise solution.
"With Digital Fuel we were able to help our customers realize approximately $10 million in IT services billing reductions in our first year," said Floyd Rutan, Executive Director of Cummins Business Services. "It gave us powerful insights into IT service usage across our organization. We're now using Digital Fuel as a key component of our overall IT service management initiatives."
