IT Cost Transparency

A need does not create an opportunity, there must be vision and capacity
 
Increasingly organizations are growing their investment with IT licenses and equipment leasing services that are amortized on their specific financial reports. IT cost transparency can become extremely complex as organizations purchase licenses and IT equipment at different times, for different amounts, and with different terms.
