Managing innovative technology investment and rising security risks

Companies are counting on CIOs and their organizations to help them stay ahead of the competition and the spiraling requirements of an increasingly engaged customer base. This demand for innovation is driving significant shifts in IT portfolio investments, forcing IT to make business operations more efficient while allocating more budget dollars to support innovation and growth. Meanwhile, IT must manage a complex and fragmented product and supplier landscape across critical IT initiatives: transformation of traditional data centers, digitization of the enterprise, the mobile explosion and expansion of global capabilities and solutions.

To manage this evolving landscape, IT leaders must engage an expanding portfolio of vendors while navigating increasingly complex contract structures with little historical basis for evaluation – and that’s where Procurian can help.
