Learn how they did it and what is possible when you start to run IT like a business.

Apptio Bill of IT

Federal Government


Federal agencies today are actively modernizing their IT footprint without sacrificing mission deliverables, and TBM is helping to meet these goals. The President’s Management Agenda included funding for a TBM Office in GSA and the OMB provided guidance on how to deliver on these TBM objectives.


Apptio’s portfolio of SaaS TBM solutions has led the market for over a decade. With our recent JAB P-ATO FedRAMP certification, we’re poised to engage and demonstrate value quickly.

State & Local Government


CIOs live at the nexus of pressure from citizens and legislators. Fortunately they also realize the potential for IT modernization.


Whether it's shared services, cloud adoption, security and risk management, or more, Apptio has spent years helping these agencies make the data-driven decisions that deliver results.

Higher Education


The IT challenges of higher education aren’t different from other public sector organizations—they just have less funding. TBM has proven to be a critical practice for gaining visibility across IT investments and developing a budget based on responsibility centers.


Apptio has worked with prestigious educational institutions around the world to help them run IT like a business.
