FYI, this story is more than a year old

In tough times it’s often easy to stretch out the life of your IT equipment but what many businesses don’t know is that in trying to save they have ended up spending more. More and more, CFOs are being challenged to drive down on the cost of IT per head or as a percentage of revenue. Find out how you compare against market benchmarks.

The team at Maclean is running an IT breakfast series targeted at CFOs and executives starting in late April to investigate this and a range of other topics during the year.

Join them for this first event where you can hear from industry experts, win some great prizes from Microsoft and HP and even score yourself a free breakfast.

Key topics include:

1.     Life cycle management - How long is too long to stretch the life of your investment, understand when not spending, actually costs you more.

2.     Rethink rather than replace - Gain an understanding of the range of options to consider -onsite, offsite and virtualised, how you establish the tipping point.

3.     Benchmark yourself against industry norms - IT spend per head, IT as a percentage of revenue, a range of benchmark data to assist with your investment decisions.

These topics are a taste of what is being covered at the event. Attendance is complimentary to CFOs and executives, with the information being most relevant to companies with more than 20 members of staff.
