HERE ARE MY TOP TWO IT COST REDUCTION STRATEGIES YOU CAN USE NOW
➊ PERFORM ZERO-BASED IT BUDGETING – ZBB (Zero Based budgeting is a great way to reduce IT Cost), What was purchased last year may not be required this year in the same quantities. Performing zero-based budgeting will halt all non-relevant IT spending.
➋ CANCEL MAINTAIANCE ON SOFTWARE NOT USED – At the time of implementation of new software, additional modules and quantities are purchased on the assumption of future user growth. After go-live, some functionalities may not be deployed or used at all. Save cost by renegotiating or stop paying for maintenance on software licences/ modules that will never be used.
I offer unbiased and practical advice to individuals and companies for reducing IT Cost & securing funding for digital transformation initiatives. My actionable advice can help you become SMART, GAIN Credibility & WIN Trust of Board, Investors, CEOs, CFOs & CIOs.
