The Importance of cost transparency across the business and the framework needed in place to be successful

Technology is essential to businesses in all sectors. A wide array of digital business models, platforms, and solutions have emerged to solve a CIO's everyday challenges and provide them with new opportunities. Considering the centrality of IT to a business, it faces daily challenges from the business and finance. As IT is expected and continues its spending on an upward trajectory, it is now even critical that a company's cost base is transparent across the business. During the pandemic, companies need to advance their goals, prioritize technology and maintain high performance even more. Therefore, a transparent collaborative and universal language is critical when discussing IT spending.
