Moving Up the Stack: Using Business Capabilities to Drive Business Value
Tuesday, November 7, 2017,
2:00pm - 2:45pm
Location: Margaux 1
Session Hosted by Dell
Speaker:
Dirk von der Brake, TBM Office & Benchmarking Manager, ExxonMobil
Ulka Wilson, Manager, IT Business Management, ExxonMobil
Session Description

Are you looking for a framework to enable value-based discussions with your business customers? Do you want to stop talking cost and start talking revenue? Mapping IT spend to business capabilities that are enabled through IT can be a great way to position yourself for this challenge.

The ‘business capability’ layer at the top of the TBM model is intended to provide this lens. When the cost of fully loaded business application services is viewed in the context of the business value provided, crucial conversations inevitably follow. But how do you measure business value? What do we measure today? Often, traditional IT performance metrics are related to the health of the IT ‘engine room’ with little or no correlation to business outcome. Somehow, we need to articulate IT’s impact on key business performance metrics. One way to approach this is to measure IT performance by business capability. Practical advice on how and where to start mapping IT cost and performance to business capabilities will be provided.

TBM has (re)ignited interest among companies to map IT services to business capabilities across and within industries for many reasons. We’ll discuss what a business capability is, why this lens is important for value-based discussions, and what the TBM evolution could look like in this area.

That Application Costs What? Making Sense of Application Costs in an Enterprise Environment
Wednesday, November 8, 2017,

Location: Margaux 1
Speaker:
David Levenstein , Director of Development, Chicago Trading Company
Jennifer Paik Chung, Senior Director of Technology Business Management, Chicago Trading Company
Benjamin Reasons, Finanical Analyst, TBM, Chicago Trading Company
Session Description

In many organizations, in-house application and service development represents a sizable percentage of overall technology cost. As enterprise architecture becomes increasingly distributed and micro-service oriented, it grows progressively difficult to model and allocate application costs. Applications often appear exorbitantly expensive with little transparency as to why. This can drive business lines away from using the application in order to 'save costs', which not only prevents them from deriving the value the application provides, but often results in the cost being allocated elsewhere. In this session, Chicago Trading Company will share their evolution on modelling and allocating application costs to drive transparency and incent the right business behaviors.

Since its establishment, Technology Business Management (TBM) has been adopted by federal agencies, state and local governments, universities and other not-for-profit enterprises. While these organizations lack a profit motive, their IT leaders must create greater value for their businesses, just like those in their profit-seeking counterparts. This is good news for taxpayers, citizens and others who benefit from better, more efficient services. However, these leaders face unique challenges due to differences in financial accounting, funding models, oversight, acquisition processes and more. In this panel, TBM leaders from the government and not-for-profit sectors will answer tough questions about employing TBM successfully in their organizations.

Rhina Recinos, Associate Director IT Finance, NYU Langone Health
Wayne Boney, Senior Director of IT Finance, NYU Langone Health
Session Description

In the world that is overloaded with data, there is no problem more universal, and challenging as bad data. Indeed, organizations that adopt TBM must address the imperfect or missing data issue during the process to the competitive advantage which is achieved by robust data analytics. Although there is no single recipe for how to deal with this issue, there is a consensus that even less-than-perfect data deserves careful consideration.

In this session, the TBM team at NYU Langone Health will present their experience dealing with challenging data. Instead of trying to make it perfect, the TBM team level set expectations and gave themselves the freedom to engage budgetary and data owners to strategize how to improve it going forward. Through understanding how their inputs impact the quality of allocations, they have fostered a business culture that is based on fact-driven discussions, with a strong focus on continuous improvement. Everything considered, we all wish for perfect data, but we must be agile. Attend this session to learn about the key principles to improve data including:

- Document how and where the data is used

- Be transparent with stakeholders

- Build a healthy working environment that will lead to significant ongoing improvements

- There is value even in the imperfect data
