Technology Business Management (TBM)

The core principles of Technology Business Management are similar to the core principles of sales, manufacturing or any other corporate business function. Like a sale or a manufactured good, IT is responsible for managing and reporting on the cost, performance and planning process associated with delivering those products or services to the business. 

The Avantage TBM practice includes team members with deep experience and expertise in all facets of technology business management, including IT operations, IT finance, IT business alignment and IT change management. We take into consideration your current capabilities, desired state and even your organization’s capacity for change. This service includes access to our entire library of tools, documentation and research through your TBM Advisor to ensure that value is delivered quickly, meaningfully and in alignment with your objectives.
