With IT professionals under mounting pressure to reduce costs in an increasingly complex environment, IT teams can no longer leave financial management strictly to the finance department. Instead, everyone must work together to articulate the value that IT brings to the business. With this challenge in mind, the BrightTALK IT Financial Management Summit aims to connect attendees with leading experts, analysts and end users who will share useful information on how to implement, manage and maintain a financial management strategy to better measure the costs of IT in several educational webinar sessions, including:

"How Mature is Your IT Financial Management?"

As demands from business units for IT services continuously expands and empowered customers have an almost endless supply of choices, IT organizations must rethink how they can better partner with business teams. The main challenge is determining how to manage the existing environment and balance with investments and improvements, as IT budgets are expected to remain relatively flat through 2016. Since IT organizations have always been involved in finance to some degree, the question isn't whether they have an IT financial management plan, but rather how mature it is.

During this panel discussion, Eveline Oehrlich, research director and vice president, IT Operations of Forrester, moderates a panel discussion that will include Kelly Williams, managing partner of ITFM consulting firm, CEAK LLC. Williams will discuss how ComSci has enabled TIAA-CREF and publishing conglomerate Reed-Elsevier to achieve a high level of maturity relative to the companies' IT financial management initiatives.

"Fab 4 Use Cases - Measuring a Successful IT Financial Management Implementation"

In today's business environment, CIOs face enormous pressure to drive value from their IT budgets and maximize investments to drive innovation. Any ROI cost benefit analysis requires well documented use cases that are presented as a series of steps to capture value, rather than being summarized in a single report, and should be a process that is prescriptive and proactive and not an afterthought.

In this session, Brian Stedman, vice president of Product Management for ComSci, will introduce four common use cases that justify IT financial management implementation and show attendees where to find value and revenue, as well as areas of waste and hidden costs savings. In addition, attendees will learn the framework needed to establish these key measures and gain insight into how they can develop a better process for data collection, synthesis of that data, costing and planning.

CIOs, executives and IT professionals who wish to learn about ComSci's cutting-edge IT business financial management solutions, and how they help organizations achieve IT financial management maturity, are encouraged to attend these two informational sessions.
