IT Financial Management

Information Technology (IT) has become the central nervous system of virtually every operation in an organisation. The rapidly changing business and technology environment confronts decision makers with the important challenge to justify the required investments, maintain the cost level at an acceptable level whilst not putting long-term IT capacity and agility at stake.
IT Financial Management is the discipline of ensuring that the IT infrastructure is obtained at the most effective price (which does not necessarily mean cheapest) and calculating the cost of providing IT services so that an organization can understand the costs of its IT services. These costs may then be recovered from the customer of the service.
Costs are divided into costing units: Equipment; Software; Organization (staff, overtime; accommodation; transfer costs (costs of 3rd party service providers)
These costs are divided into Direct and Indirect costs and may be Capital or Ongoing.
The practice of IT financial management enables the Service Manager to identify the amount being spent on security countermeasures in the provision of the IT services.
The amount being spent on these countermeasures needs to be balanced with the risks and the potential losses that the service could incur as identified during a business impact assessment and risk assessment.
Management of these costs will ultimately reflect on the cost of providing the IT services and potentially what is charged in the recovery of these costs.

Objectives

Overall, the basic goal behind IT Financial Management is to offer a truly transparent analysis of what an organization is spending on IT resources. In many cases, this analysis of efficiency is used to create intelligent, metric-based cost-cutting strategies.
For an internal IT organization, the goal is described as:

  • To provide cost-effective stewardship of the IT assets and resources used in providing IT services
    For an outsourced IT organization or an IT organization which is run as if it were a separate entity (ie, with full charging) the goal may be described as:
  • To be able to account fully for the spend on IT services and to be able to attribute these costs to the services delivered to the organization’s customers and to assist management by providing detailed and costed business cases for proposed changes to IT services
  • The course enables delegates to understand how an IT Financial Management framework, based on best practice guidelines, can be adopted and adapted within their own organizations.
  • To provide proven practical guidance on how to successfully introduce an integrated IT Financial Management framework based on the best practice service lifecycle approach.
  • To prepare delegates for the ITIL Foundation Certificate in IT Financial Management examination

IT Balanced ScoreCard

APA YANG DIMAKSUD DENGAN  IT BALANCED SCORECARD?

The balanced scorecard (BSC) awalnya dikembangkan oleh Kaplan dan Norton, adalah sistem manajemen kinerja yang memungkinkan perusahaan untuk mendorong strategi mereka pada pengukuran dan tindak lanjut. Dalam beberapa tahun terakhir BSC telah diterapkan untuk teknologi informasi (TI) dan saat ini sudah mulai banyak muncul penerapan IT Balanced Scorecard (IT BSC).

Ukuran keberhasilan implementasi teknologi informasi (information technology/IT) bagi sebuah perusahaan/organisasi dilihat dari seberapa besar IT perusahaan  tersebut  memberikan  value  dan  dukungan  bagi  pencapaian  tujuan  bisnisnya.  Setelah  investasi  IT dilakukan  oleh  sebuah perusahaan maka pertanyaan selanjutnya adalah seberapa besar investasi tersebut memberikan return bagi bisnis dan bagaimana mengukurnya.

MANFAAT BALANCED SCORECARD?

Dengan menggunakan  pendekatan balanced scorecard (BSC) untuk bisnis maka konsep yang sama dapat juga diterapkan untuk mengukur kinerja IT. IT Balanced Scorecard dapat mengukur kinerja IT sehingga mampu meningkatkan layanan IT bagi bisnis.
