CostLens© is a Next Generation big-data TBM solution
Traditional TBM tools are based on outdated technology which restricts flexibility, limits functionality, makes it difficult to use and expensive to maintain. Key drawbacks are…
High TCO: Inflexible to changes in surrounding Data and Tool ecosystem
TBM tools consume data from multiple data sources. Regular changes to this ecosystem require significant programming skillsets thereby increasing costs.
High TCO: Requires hours / days of excel analysis to answer strategic questions
The current tools require significant amounts of time and effort of excel processing to be able to answer business queries
High Implementation Costs: Requires additional programming to reflect complexity of today’s multi-entity Operating models
Today’s IT teams operate globally across multiple countries servicing global multiple Product lines and middle/back office departments. Traditional TBM tools can’t handle this complexity out of the box and requires expensive programming for one-off setup and ongoing maintainence.
Traditional relational databases loose end-to-end cost insights
Traditional TBM tools program multiple layers of data transformation to meet the data requirements of its out-of-the-box reports, thus loosing insights along the way
CostLens© addresses all these drawbacks.
