When you’re justifying the ROI of implementing Technology Expense Management (TEM), don’t just look at hard dollar paybacks, such as refunds for billing errors. Instead, consider the time and cost savings that are often overlooked:

D’après un rapport du Transparency Market Research, la gestion des dépenses de télécommunications (GDT) pèsera 4,92 milliards de dollars aux États-Unis en 2024. Mais la GDT reste très sous-utilisée dans la zone EMEA (Europe, Moyen-Orient et Afrique) — malgré les économies qu’elle pourrait apporter aux entreprises.

Laut einem Bericht von Transparency Market Research wird das Marktvolumen von Technology Expense Management-Lösungen (kurz: TEM) in den USA bis 2024 etwa 4,92 Milliarden US-Dollar betragen. Trotz dieser vielversprechenden Aussichten wird TEM in Europa, dem Nahen Osten und Afrika noch zu selten genutzt. Und das, obwohl die Einsparungen für Unternehmen enorm sein können.

The COVID-19 pandemic only accelerated the transition to even greater use of mobile devices for personal communications. Many people preferred to use their company-provided smartphone rather than their home phone to keep in touch with everyone. Especially in companies using unified-communication-as-a-service (UCaaS), mobile was preferred for its direct access to the corporate network for calls, texts, video, and other data exchange with colleagues.

Automation makes our lives easier. It gives us clarity and consistency, eliminating many laborious manual tasks (and the accompanying, inevitable human error).
We know that technology professionals are increasingly strapped for time and resources as pressure mounts in a competitive, fast-paced environment. Much of that pressure on IT teams can be alleviated by automating their technology expense reporting and business intelligence, enabling enterprises to more quickly access insights to get in control of – and cut down on – costs.

You might have plenty of data, but what are you doing with this data? Moreover, what is the data doing for you and your enterprise?
Data and analytics ultimately the drive spending decisions of future cloud, network, mobility and the overall IT budgets — so it’s imperative your enterprise is up-to-date on the latest capabilities. When used right, business intelligence (BI) can reveal your technology infrastructure’s pain points, illuminate where expenses are occurring and where they might be reduced, support benchmarking, and provide predictive and prescriptive analytics. BI can empower organizations to gain insight into new opportunities, assess demand and measure suitability of different services.
But what BI developments really have a measurable impact in streamlining and improving everyday processes — while also reducing costs? We narrowed it down to five of the most game-changing trends in BI for IT Finance teams.
Dynamic and Visual Reporting
With the ultra-modern capabilities offered by some BI platforms, digesting, analyzing and sharing relevant, real-time business insights is becoming easier and more intuitive. Today’s dynamic dashboard interfaces are able to simplify and display enormous amounts of data with applicable and responsive visual aids, such as:
• At-a-glance, easy-to-digest charts and graphs presenting a quick overview of usage and account activity.
• Map-based visualizations that allow enterprises to keep tabs on services spanning cities and other geographies. If a company is undergoing a major re-organization, this perspective can help your enterprise see where services are still active — and eliminate unnecessary recurring expenses.
• Calendar visualizations that offer visibility in terms of deadlines, contract renewals, invoicing and delivery dates.
Dashboards are increasingly designed with a self-service mentality, allowing users to build reports to display the data exactly how they want. IT teams can adjust the dashboard to fit their preferences — aesthetically and functionally. Personalization saves time, as users won’t need to sift through piles of irrelevant data to extract the information they need.
Without self-service capabilities, users need to export raw data into Excel spreadsheets so they can manually manipulate the data and distribute it to others. This a time-consuming, non-reproductible process that slows decision-making. Further, some BI vendors charge additional fees to create specified reports time-consuming and non-reproductible, slowing down decision-making.
