Transparency:



Higher maturity IT transparency practices are seen as a prerequisite for better supply and demand decisions, and they enable many enterprises to optimize costs and cut costs the right way, while preserving what is most important to the enterprise. IT business services must be defined and validated by the business for IT transparency and cost optimization to occur. The effectiveness of transparency needs to be considered through defining the business outcomes. This is not possible until IT and the business have agreed explicitly on what IT provides the business and what the business needs from IT.



With transparency, additional benefits can include better demand management, identification of business value, the ability to run IT like a business, better IT estimation capabilities and overall better marketing of the IT capability in general. Without transparency, the worst fears of enterprise stakeholders are often validated. With transparency, the IT organization can change its desired role in the business and enter into different value discussions that balance costs with benefits of IT-enabled endeavors and services.
