We routinely ask executive leadership and IT leadership if they think they are overspending or underspending on their IT. We found that the majority of executives feel they are overspending and the majority of IT managers feel they don’t have enough budget.
Not seeing eye-to-eye on IT spend or strategy can be a huge headache for companies, and can even reduce the efficiency of their IT efforts if both departments can’t find a happy and effective medium. So where are they supposed to draw the line?
Trapp Technology recommends looking at data points and strategy. Developing an overall business strategy will be the driver behind investing or divestment into new technologies. Spend benchmarking against your competition/strategy will then help drive the conversation of overspend/underspend.
