If there is one guarantee in the tech space, it is this – things change. Take the mobile phone, as an example. When these gadgets were first introduced they could do little more than place calls. As these devices got more advanced, people could send text messages, handsets got smaller and various other things like calculators, games and keypad tones. Then we got full-size QWERTY keyboards, colour screens and personalised ring tones. With the introduction of the Blackberry, emails and web browsing came straight to our phones. Then the iPhone was released, the era of the smartphone began, and our lives would never be the same again.
Much like the mobile phone has evolved into something a little “smarter”, the telecoms expense management (TEM) space started out as a way to track costs. TEM was needed because telecoms costs are some of the highest expenses for the modern enterprise. Today, we believe that the T in TEM should actually stand for “technology” because digital transformation and the cloud have made telecoms networks much more complex. As modern businesses search for ways to successfully use cloud technology to enhance their operations and improve the customer experience, they need a solution that manages their cloud consumption.
Pure TEM is no longer enough
Consider the example we outlined above. Can you imagine using some of the early iterations of the cell phone today? With no camera, apps or web access? We’re not saying you wouldn’t manage just fine but what we are saying it that you’d probably struggle to keep up with those around you. In business, if you’re unable to keep up with your competitors, you’re losing business and losing money.
With the right technology expense management platform in place – one that offers visibility across your entire IT and Telecommunications products and services – it is easier to track usage and costs. If you want to effectively manage and understand your enterprise ICT environment, you need a platform that offers visibility and real time updates. With a technology expense management solution in place, businesses are accounting for new IT assets like cloud, the Internet of Things, software and other network solutions.
