Many software manufacturers are moving between classic licensing concepts (one-time purchase plus possible maintenance) to subscription models (time-limited usage rights). Licensing agreements with subscriptions usually allow the license quantity to be adjusted upwards (increased demand) or downwards (reduced demand) depending on requirements. In order to derive the greatest possible benefit from this gain in flexibility, regular demand/usage evaluations are required on the one hand, and suitable billing models on the other.

What is IT controlling?
IT controlling is where key figures for projects, processes and systems come together. Consequently, IT controlling is closely linked to IT asset management and relies on its input. One of the main tasks of IT controlling is to determine and allocate all IT costs incurred. This includes, for example, costs for the use of hardware and software, services, support readiness and the distribution and allocation of costs according to the IT usage determined in IT asset management.

Tasks of IT controlling
Due to the ever-increasing complexity caused by digitalization, among other things, IT controlling is constantly faced with new challenges. Two key areas of IT controlling are chargeback (internal accounting) and FinOps.
Chargeback (internal allocation) ensures that costs are allocated to the departments or parts of the company where the costs are actually incurred. With an effective and efficient chargeback model, costs can be saved and tracked. We help you to implement a chargeback model that is tailored to your company.
FinOps or "cloud cost management" deals with the costs incurred by cloud usage. Unlike on-premise products, which are purchased once, cloud software or services are paid for according to use / performance. Classically, the costs for cloud use in companies continue to rise steadily and uncontrollably. FinOps describes the activity of making the costs for cloud usage obsolete and of course lower.
