BOSTON, May 18, 2015 - Executives from MEGA International will meet with CIOs from Fortune 1000 companies at the CIO Forum in San Francisco on June 4 to demonstrate how companies can shift their IT resource allocation from operational maintenance toward growth and innovation.
“Every CIO is trying to ‘slide the line’ on the IT budget, because more than 80% of budgets are typically spent on day-to-day maintenance of existing systems,” noted Lucio de Risi, CEO, MEGA. “They are challenged to devote more funding to innovation in IT so they can support digital transformation.”
“Because of the complexity of the IT environment, companies are choosing to automate their methods of assessing, planning and changing IT resources,” de Risi went on to explain. “Companies with complete insight into the financial and operational elements of their IT portfolio are the ones that have successfully decreased maintenance and license expenses and dedicated more funds to innovation.”
MEGA offers software solutions that help companies focus on business agility. Fortune 1000 companies have been using the MEGA solutions for more than 20 years to help gather and evaluate information to create a ‘single source of truth’. This united and interactive view of the whole business, its assets, processes and risks, can be shared by many employees, work groups and managers across division lines or geographies to increase collaboration.
