on April 20, 2017 11:00 AM By | Caroline Le Brun | 0 Comments | Telecom Expense Management IT cost management Value Bills of IT
Bringing the Value of IT to Light For the uninitiated, a bill of IT is a bill of materials which clearly and transparently explains the cost of IT services and devices in a way that’s easily understood by business end-users.

In 2014, they found that the ratio increased from $10.66 to $13.01. That is 122% more return in 2 years. This indicates that there is an increasing trend for Business Analytics. Not too shabby.

The name Cimpl has brought a new wave of innovation in our organization. One of them being that our solution is now multi-tenant. Leveraging the SaaS trend of multi-tenancy is quite advantageous in the area of technology expense management for organisations to create operational efficiencies and optimize IT costs. For Dummies writes that “multi-tenancy means that a SaaS (Software as a Service) vendor provides a single version of its software for all its customers. This differs from a single-tenant hosted solution, where the application is housed on a vendor’s server but the codebase is unique for each customer.” In this scenario, users have access to a single scalable platform and their sensitive information is containerized and not accessible by other users.
