DETAILS:
Full technology (or IT) cost transparency can help a business effectively explain the relationship between technology investment levels and business performance. Unfortunately, a number of obstacles can cause an organization to achieve what's known as false IT cost transparency. This false IT cost transparency only partially monitors and captures how a business consumes technology, ultimately leading to ill-informed business decisions.

Experts from Rubin Worldwide -- a ComSci partner -- draw from years of experience, research and formal analysis to define true IT transparency and identify the key factors for achieving IT financial management success. Attendees will learn the components of complete and accurate IT cost transparency and how a best practices model -- which includes benchmarking, management and full-scope monitoring -- can help their business get the most from its investments.

Presenter Dr. Howard Rubin, president and CEO of Rubin Worldwide is internationally recognized for his work as an author, researcher, speaker and consultant in the areas of IT measurement, techno-business strategy, global software and economics, the business value of technology, performance measurement and benchmarking. Dr. Rubin holds degrees from both Harvard & MIT and has enjoyed an impressive tenure in academia at Hunter College and the City University of New York. He has worked with the U.S. State Department's Advisory Committee on International Economic Policy as well as heads of state around the world to develop national competitive technology strategies for Canada, India, the Philippines, South Africa and the United States. He currently serves as an advisor to former U.S. President Bill Clinton and is a senior advisor for Gartner Research.

Dr. Rubin is joined by Mr. Jed Rubin, principal for Rubin Worldwide, who has worked in the field of technology economics for over ten years. Mr. Rubin has served as Director of the Worldwide IT Benchmark Service at Gartner and was responsible for the annual publication of the Gartner Worldwide IT Benchmark Report and META Group's IT Measurement Desk Reference as well as other Gartner & META product development initiatives. Since co-founding Rubin Worldwide, he has been involved in numerous academic research, product development, publication and speaking engagements in North America and across Europe.
