To help the organization better align budgets with project and operational demands, improve business unit engagement in planning, and address SaaS-related shadow IT, Christus Health’s IT Finance team needed to streamline the planning process. Leveraging a 12- week window between budget cycles, the team was able to rapidly configure Apptio IT Planning and train managers in the new system, eliminating inherent inefficiencies  involved in data collection and improving visibility into IT spend. Today, the Information Management team at Christus Health is using Apptio IT Planning to build stronger relationships with business units, supporting smarter spend strategies and fostering increased accountability among budget owners.
