Join BearingPoint Managing Director, Julien Courbe, as he walks us through the latest edition of BearingPoint’s Financial Services Technology Journal on cost management for IT organizations. The fluctuations of financial services firms’ business volumes reflect the cyclical nature of the overall financial markets. These dynamics are often caused by specific crises or a slowdown in the economy. Professional IT managers know that controlling costs and aligning expenditures with overall business goals and spending are critical to organizational health. But it’s a classic case of “easier said than done.” With continuing overcast skies forecast for the global economy, every step you take to infuse your IT organization with fiscal agility now should be appreciated – at the bottom line and in every line of business.
The November 2008 issue of BearingPoint’s Financial Services Technology Journal offers effective, up-to-date thought leadership on IT cost planning. From the critical right-now technologies (e.g., service-oriented architecture, cloud computing) to practices that involve outsourcing and out-tasking (i.e., outsourcing simple tasks) to new paradigms in service models, executives and technology leaders should find this journal to be an invaluable resource in their efforts to improve their organizational operating leverage.
