"Take Control of Runaway IT Spending"

The IT Director's Guide to Chargeback & Showback

Global IT spending will top $4.5 trillion in 2022 – including 11.5% growth in enterprise software spending and 8.6% growth in IT services costs since 2021.

Ever wish you knew how and when departments in your organization use critical IT infrastructure and software? Maybe one department has extra licenses or storage allocations that it doesn’t use, while another department usually needs more than it asks for.

This is important information that can help organizations save money and improve performance. But many IT teams and company leaders don’t have access to these kinds of details.

That’s why over 50% of businesses have turned to chargeback (or showback) reporting.

If your organization is considering a chargeback or showback policy – or even if you’re in the process of implementing or refining one – there are important questions to think through.

  1. Which is better for our organization: chargeback or showback?
  2. What potential challenges should we prepare for when doing chargeback or showback for storage costs?
  3. How will we ensure accurate data and a smooth reporting process so that our chargebacks or showbacks stay reliable?

In this white paper, we’ll answer all three of these questions.
