IT costs have always been a crucial topic for CIOs. For many years, the IT function was viewed as a major cost block, which subjected CIOs to internal pressure to cut costs. Today, it’s the increasing budgets for digitization and transformation initiatives that shift the focus of corporate and IT leadership towards the proper allocation of budgets and the value contribution of IT. In this regard, IT consultancy kobaltblau now supports with their new competency field “IT Cost & Value Management.”

The new competency field “IT Cost & Value Management” has been added to kobaltblau’s portfolio of IT management consulting services since the beginning of 2023. With Thomas Roling, the company has acquired an expert who has previously been responsible for this topic for many years at PwC.

With the increasing importance of IT for business success, IT budgets have also grown enormously. IT organizations are becoming larger and, above all, more complex. Global collaboration models are the norm, as are bi-modal work approaches in which self-operated, outsourced, and cloud-based services work together in parallel. This poses numerous challenges in the financial and qualitative management of IT organizations.

“We help IT leaders to maintain an overview, actively manage their departments, and identify risks early on.”

In this regard, kobaltblau advises companies to establish the right structures and processes for planning and actuals, to gather the required cost and quantity information, define suitable tooling, and set up data flows as efficiently as possible. This provides all stakeholders with the necessary transparency and decision-making basis without creating unnecessary bureaucracy.

Furthermore, the consultancy also supports with organizational issues related to the establishment and expansion of IT controlling and its optimal integration with other IT management areas such as service or portfolio management, as well as concepts for determining the value contribution of provided IT services.

Methods for IT cost optimization complement the offering – these include data-driven analyses such as benchmarking and cloud cost management, as well as collaborative approaches to cost reduction.
