Some organisations are able to invest their way out of recession; others unfortunately are having to cut back, at least temporarily, by disinvesting, cancelling or delaying IT or other projects. Fortunately the same methods for determining their financial effect are applicable to all these activities. The purpose of this practical seminar is to facilitate the making of financially sound decisions about IT, whatever the circumstances.

Delegates will learn:

• How to construct an IT cost/benefit financial case from given data
• Evaluate an IT cost/benefit case financially
• Use various methods for financing IT
• Explain various other IT-relevant aspects of finance
• Interpret the Accounts of an organisation and explain how IT services, software and hardware are dealt with therein
• Explain some key financial ratios and their relevance in an IT context
• Understand those elements of financial jargon that are inescapable
