To know > To guess

Most organizations spend 57%-80% of their IT budgets to support business operations. Instead, they must focus on accelerating digital transformation and channeling resources toward innovation. This is where cost optimization can power their lift, as it’s all about embracing a business-focused, continuous discipline to drive spending and cost reduction while maximizing business value.

The path to cost optimization, however, is not easily defined, and strategies often involve some extent of guesswork or ‘business hunch.’ Optimizing costs across hardware, software, personnel, and outsourcing with even slight guesswork may either lead to great success or massive failure – an unacceptable uncertainty. Ascendion’s Pathfinder framework helps organizations remove the guesswork from decision-making.

With impeccable due diligence, opportunity heatmaps, and smart ROI-benchmarked models, Pathfinder helps your organization gain clarity to make the right decisions. It enables you to know, rather than guess, the right cost optimization path to achieve ~20-35% cost savings and maximum business value.
