Overall Satisfaction with Apptio Technology Business Management

Apptio enables Fortune 100 organizations to see what their IT department is spending, how it is utilizing their resources, and how those resources are being consumed by the company. It is truly unique and the capabilities are endless. Most companies have servers that have been retired which are still being paid for, implemented expensive technology such as Tier 1 storage that is not being utilized, and it holds the business units or managers accountable. Apptio provides the facts based on data to let the CIO make effective decisions with the IT resources and financials!
  • The reporting of the data is second to none. The standard out of the box reporting shows incredible insight and gives the information execs need to make the correct decisions.
  • Showing companies what data to collect and how to go about creating and collecting consistent data
  • Providing visibility into the IT department unlike any other software. Really making the unknown come to life in reports
  • Always improving and getting better. Every two weeks a new iteration is released
  • Features are becoming easier to use, but like any software there is a constant progression
  • Getting companies on the right track for not only finding data but collecting consistent data
  • All positive! It has been beneficial to each and every customer and is a relatively quick implementation process
  • The savings that are provided by finding unnecessary servers, expensive storage, or even phone bills that are not being utilized but paid for is incredible
  • Employees can make better decisions based off facts and not off assumptions of the unknown benefit of the IT department
  • IT is now treated as an asset to the business and not just an expense. Companies can now make better tech investments and increase their productivity!
There is no true competitor that is even comparable to allowing the same capabilities and benefits Apptio provides. It is ground breaking in every sense of the word and will make a huge difference for each and every customer. It can be very complex at times, but like everything in life anything worth implementing takes time, effort, and some growing pains.
It is hands down the most innovative SaaS on the market today. In my humble opinion it will be just as big or bigger than Salesforce, Workday and all of the greats. I would advise any big company to take advantage of Apptio and renew on an annual basis with their support team!
Apptio is perfect for a company with a large IT spend and an overwhelming amount of complexity. It is a cloud-based software and is truly cutting edge. After working with the software for a few months now it is absolutely astonishing to see the benefits and capabilities it provides many companies that they did not have any clue about before!
