Laura Cunningham CPA (Certified Public Accountant), Business Consultant, HP
About this talk
One of the significant changes resulting from the current economic climate has been the level of external scrutiny applied to IT initiatives. CFOs are demanding comprehensive business cases that can both articulate the value that IT brings to a business and withstand vetting by financial analysts. This session will integrate traditional financial models with business value metrics in order to provide an understandable vehicle for obtaining approval for IT Initiatives. Learn how to quantify financial costs and benefits in order to bridge the gap between what a CIO wants and what a CFO needs to justify the IT investment.
