Apptio has launched an IT metrics dashboard allowing enterprise CIOs to measure and manage IT organisations.
CIO Dashboard, available through the Cost Transparency application and a new tablet application, helps IT departments track metrics by business units, applications, infrastructure, financial variance and public cloud.
The release includes enhancements to Apptio’s Cost Transparency and IT Benchmarking applications, bringing cloud analytics and decision support for on-premise and cloud infrastructure.
Apptio also added real-time aggregated data from its customer base to the Benchmarking application.
The dashboard is ratified by the nonprofit Technology Business Management (TBM) Council.
"Providing CIOs with situational awareness of their key IT metrics across their entire portfolio frees up time that can be devoted to innovative ‘change the business’ activities," said Ted Kummert, EVP of Engineering at Apptio.
"Based on our more than 250 TBM deployments, we know what CIOs need to quickly navigate, report, and manage their top KPIs across all IT domains."
"Having a standard set of third-party metrics we can use to run IT like a business is vital to the health and credibility of our organisation. Apptio’s CIO Dashboard will allow us to easily communicate the status of key investments and initiatives to our internal business leaders," said Larry Godec, Chief Information Officer at First American Financial Corporation.
"As a board member of the nonprofit TBM Council, I am proud to be a part of the organisation that developed these valuable metrics."
