Benchmarking Return on Technology Investments

After years of stagnant growth during the post-global-financial-crisis environment, firms are faced with budgetary pressures, declining resources, and restructuring.  At the same time, firms are desperately looking for new ways to innovate and compete by better leveraging technology.

Against this backdrop, Alphacution Research Conservatory, a new data and analytics firm focused on technical infrastructure intelligence, proposes a standardized data-driven framework that can measure the return on technology (RoT) and, more importantly, benchmark firms in its modeling sample and quantify a firm’s “tech dividend” or “tech debt.”

View this webinar featuring Paul Rowady, director of research at Alphacution Research Conservatory, and Sang Lee, managing partner at Aite Group, to learn more about RoT and how firms can utilize this concept to better navigate their transformation and ultimately optimize their overall IT investment strategy.

The webinar will provide the following insights:

•         Brief discussion of challenges within the financial services industry

•         Introduction of Alphacution and relationship with Aite Group

•         Presentation of the concept of RoT

                   o   What is it?

                   o   Where are we today with this concept and where is it headed?

                   o   How is this going to help you?

•         Case studies highlighting applicability of RoT
