However, in today’s times of economic downturn with a long and hard recovery being predicted, conserving cash takes on a criticality like never before. Mandatory IT budget cuts are and soon will be prevalent across the board. IT leaders must follow a structured approach to identify, evaluate and deliver cost-saving measures that still can deliver performance and needed innovation.
