WEBINAR : IM Breakfast Speaker Event with Livingstone Group
16th Mar 2021, 8:15am - 9am
with Guest Speaker
Chris Gough, Chief Strategy Officer, Livingstone Group
“Governing rapid IT transformation & increasing consumption”
The last 18 months has seen massive acceleration taking place in how technology has been adopted, procured and deployed. Traditional cost and risk governance models struggle to keep up with this transformation. The consequence is increasing costs due to “all in” cloud and licensing contracts, commercial complexity and unmanaged consumption. Controlling the consumption of cloud services is now a strategic priority and with some vendors still using traditional methods of contract audits across licensing and cloud, organisations are being hit from all sides with budget challenges. Contract and asset management is evolving to meet these new governance challenges.
In this session Chris Gough, Chief Strategy Officer will take you through the key challenges organisations now face, how you should look at your own maturity and approach to these and what governance factors will deliver you successful outcomes.
