DETAILS:
Benchmarking is a popular way for IT organizations to justify their IT budgets and better focus their efforts to achieve a state of continuous improvement. But without following certain principles, business leaders will likely question the validity of the outcome. During this webinar, ComSci's vice president of Product Management, Brian Stedman, moderates a discussion with Frank Scavo, president of Computer Economics, who will draw on his IT management research firm's experiences with a variety of clients to outline three complementary approaches to benchmarking.

Additionally, Scavo will share best practices for defining peer groups, selecting key metrics, understanding variations by industry and organization size, analyzing gaps and translating findings into actions. Attendees will also learn how to benchmark against companies that don't look exactly like their own, why benchmarking against industry averages is a mistake, and why the most popular IT spending metric doesn't give a complete picture. Finally, participants will find out what they can do to get maximum benefit from their benchmarking results.

CIOs, executives and IT professionals who wish to learn how they can attain better results from benchmarking their IT spending and staffing ratios are encouraged to attend this informative session.
