IT driven savings
A large number of companies are either running or planning a cost reduction programme, and as IT can constitute up to 20% of an enterprise’s cost base, it is an obvious target. However, most IT cost reduction programmes lack ambition - two-thirds were only aiming for single-digit cost savings.
Current economic conditions intensify the focus on achieving quick wins, often at the expense of implementing longer term initiatives that could deliver much greater savings. This short term focus can also result in unforeseen costs outside IT, which reduce or even outweigh the initial savings. Worse still, such ‘slash and burn’ activities can reduce IT’s ability to support new business demands. Coupled with this, organisations have placed sustainability at the heart of their strategic objectives and would like to see IT make a significant contribution to these agendas.
