HBO Latin America
“As our market and consumer behavior evolve, we are trying to keep up by creating a digital-focused organization. We invested heavily on the tools and the infrastructure. From my perspective, it is just the beginning.”

NutriSavings
“With the influx of new consumer focused digital technologies, coupled with highly visible data breaches and shrinking IT budgets, it is critical for CIOs to re-evaluate their digital strategy.”

AOL
“In parallel to implementing the TBM model we also changed our data center strategy pretty massively. Part of that is overall transformation. But the other part is this TBM mindset — its the culture we’re trying to build.”

Mylan
“What we're looking to do is change the way the company operates. Not only did we need to change, but there was a clear acceptance, for the first time, that we had not been making the right investments in IT.”

Microsoft
“Cloud services promised to simplify IT operations and drive greater efficiency. To achieve that promise, we need to continually drive down capital and operating expenses. These are the challenges that we set out to tackle with our TBM journey.”

Campbell's
“We have a seat at the table with business leaders. We discuss what IT costs are being driven into the IT department and what are the results derived from those costs."

AXA
“There has been a cultural shift within Axa IM’s Technology Division: the implementation of tools that allow Technology to govern Technology makes us a more powerful business partner with our internal business clients. ”

Fannie Mae
“Defining the things that we do as services that the business understands, rather than bits and bytes, has helped begin this transformation. We had never before been able to see TCO.”

Nationwide
“Our service management team can now engage with business leaders and users of IT with multiple dimensions to guide a fuller conversation about meeting the needs of the business, as well as optimization of IT cost.”

Hillshire Brands
“The executives now see IT as part of their team. They look at them as very strategic and helpful, not only to getting them the capability they need, but actually helping them define their own strategy within their own business.”


IT FINANCIAL
PIONEER
AWARD
“Recognizing finance leaders who drive an IT financial strategy that matches the new demands of the IT organization.”

CME Group
“We're asking, ‘what is the profitability of our customers in a digital economy?’ The cost of a transaction is zero, but it exists because we put resources into it. We have to look at the peak to command the trends.”

Wells Fargo
“When the merger with Wachovia came about several years ago, I will tell you, the legacy Wells Fargo was very low in terms of financial partnership, particularly in the IT space. So we basically did a cultural transformation utilizing TBM. ”

The Clorox Company
“When you're a pioneer and thinking differently, it's just a journey of the art of the possible and that's where we're at with TBM. We see benefits, we move to the next level. We see another benefit, we move to the next level. That's our story now.”

AWARD

Cox Enterprises
“The more that we at corporate provide services to the divisions, the more important is that common language through TBM. To be able to come together at some level without having to be in each other's business is transformational.”

State of Washington
“Given the often difficult choices that have to be made about the services state government provides, it is vital that we do our best to ensure efficient and effective spending in all areas, including IT, and provide solid data.”

Comerica
“The internal battle that we had trying to bring TBM into our organization was extremely painful, to the point where my CTO said, ‘can we go it alone?’ We did and it’s been so positively received we haven’t looked back.”
