Yesterday we covered how IT is evolving to become a utility.  The focus of the second part of simplyfi IT’s web-cast was directed at providing a mechanism to measure the cost of IT, or simply put, the cost per employee (CPE).  As IT complexity rises in organizations so does cost.  The model of providing ‘IT as a Service’ is geared to reduce cost without compromising the quality of service.  This also allows IT to focus on solving more complex problems with customized applications instead of provisioning a desktop. And thus drives the value of IT to a greater alignment to the business objectives and outcomes.
