The TBM Council 2022 State of TBM Report

For the second annual State of TBM survey, the TBM Council captured responses and insights from 563 technology practitioners across every global region to share how their companies utilize Technology Business Management (TBM). The results provide insights into the evolution of TBM as it serves the continuous changes occurring within business, finance, and technology departments. Here’s what they had to say.

TBM: THE DISCIPLINE FOR TECHNOLOGY VALUE MANAGEMENT

In uncertain economic times, organizations are challenged with making fast and informed decisions. TBM helps organizations tighten their belt while still investing in innovation and produces the data necessary for enhanced analytics and the insights to inform business decisions

0%+

of organizations say data and analytics and reducing business costs are highly important business priorities. 

0%

said that TBM has reduced their cost-to-serve customers.

0%+

of technology departments surveyed agree that TBM principles and supporting software solutions provide the data they use for day-to-day operations.

TECHNOLOGY FUNDING: INCREASING TRANSPARENCY & TRUST WITH FINANCE

69%

of technology departments  include agile development costs within their TBM business models.

There is a clear shift beyond the “Core IT” services and products upon which TBM models have traditionally placed their focus.

52%

of organizations are using products or value streams as the funding mechanism for software development.

Agile transformations are reaching beyond traditional IT and reshaping Finance’s support of technology – driving a value-based convergence between finance, technology, and business.

TBM practices, or centers of excellence (COEs), will need to provide consistent transparency across the lifecycle of product-focused investments. This transparency enables technology funding to be more agile and more connected to demand, resources, and business outcomes.

ARTICULATING VALUE WHILE EMBRACING NEW TECHNOLOGIES & WAYS OF WORKING

As new technologies are adopted, TBM classifies and positions those costs into the strategic technology framework used to support business insight and outcomes. TBM has evolved with the changing demands of the modern business, and the needs of supporting finance and technology teams.

0 %

of respondents considered TBM to be important or essential to how they operate and evolve their technologies.

0 %

of survey respondents have moved to a Public Cloud-First or Hybrid strategy.

0 %

of technology departments surveyed have established FinOps practices.

THE FUTURE OF TBM

The future success of a TBM practice within an organization is dependent on its fusion with high priority business and technology initiatives. That synthesis should be based on critical capabilities and focused on:

1

Providing information and analytics on impact and value realization

2

Identifying new optimization opportunities

3

Becoming a driving force behind the increasing improvement and utility of data.
