Architecting an Effective Enterprise Taxonomy is the Key to Cloud Expense Management

By Calero-MDSL on Jan 29, 2020

Cloud Can Provide Much Greater Insights

Telecom carriers offer little ability to customize the data structure of their telecom invoices. For the most part, invoice reports are architected from the carrier’s perspective (i.e., with emphasis on what needs to be paid). This structure is primarily due to regulatory and compliance standards around USOC (Universal Service Ordering Code), tariffs, rates, service types and products and automated Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). As a result, organizations must create workarounds that programmatically correlate the only customer-defined field in the invoice (i.e., the subaccount) with the appropriate cost center owner. They must also augment other information in the invoice feed to ensure the costs are properly allocated in accordance to the current cost center assignments.

By Mark Bellingham on Apr 30, 2019

Re-enlisting and Enfranchising Rogue IT Departments

With cloud so easy to subscribe to and use, many departments have chosen to “lose patience” with IT and create their own cloud-based IT solutions, perpetuating and extending data silos and non-integrated solutions. The increase in overall operating cost to the enterprise is substantial, and often invisible. Reduced control over IT processes, resources, and costs represent significant business and financial risk. Here’s how to use cost analysis to encourage rogues to work with you instead of at crossed-purposes.
