Telecom Expense Management Is Transitioning to Technology Expense Management

TEM – Telecommunication Expense Management processes and validates invoices, loads invoices, manages wireline and landline expenses, provides a general help desk and logistic support, manages vendors and contracts, and identifies potential savings opportunities for customers. With the transition of technology to the cloud, it also transitioned to a different expenditure model. Many of the SaaS, IaaS and so many other XaaS are now being tracked as an OpEx and no longer a CapEx. The monthly recurring fees attached to this technology needs to be tracked and monitored in order to keep costs down. Telecom expense management was already dealing with these types of recurring charges with wireline and wireless management, therefore it was only natural for TEM to track cost and usage of software, IT, cloud, Machine to Machine (M2M), Unified Communications (UC), data network and security. Because of this shift, TEMIA (formerly the Telecom Expense Management Industry Association) prefer using a new term to capture the essence of this evolution and the aggregation of information coming from multiple types of technology. So TEM is no longer the acronym for ‘Telecom Expense Management’ but is now being widely used for ‘Technology Expense Management‘. Some have also adopted the term IT Expense Management (ITEM) as a replacement for Technology Expense management and both terms mean the same thing.

What Does Technology Expense Management Do?

Technology Expense Management first helps the enterprise better understand what they own, the cost of what they own and how what they own is being used. Secondly, it gives theend-user visibility on the technology assigned, how itís used, and how much it cost. With the use of a technology expense management software, such as Cimpl, organizations are able to track the cost of their inventory, receive automated reports that indicate hidden costs, track inventory, reconcile invoices and track the entire asset lifecycle. TEM provides great cost savings by showing usage, facilitating chargeback, bill payment and providing actionable reporting. All these factors help improve an organizationís business intelligence. The Telecom Expense Management industry has reinvented itself to meet the growing demand across verticals and geographies.

TEM tracks very useful information for businesses to make informed decisions and easily cut unnecessary costs. Through TEM, decision makers are able to better answer questions such as, which service is being used the least? Is that service worth keeping? What devices need to be updated? Therefore, cost saving strategies are easier to realize because costs become transparent with TEM.

5 Things You Need to Know about ADFS

When it cADFS_5ThingsArtboard_EN.pngomes right down to it, finding an effective way of cutting unnecessary losses might be just as good as generating a profit. Sounds obvious? That’s because it is – at least until you actually start looking into it. Alas, yes. It is easy to tell oneself to start saving money (or to start doing anything, really), but figuring out exactly how and where to do it is actually pretty challenging, especially for larger businesses. The more assets and people you manage, the more likely you are to see profit “leaks”. This problem is exacerbated as the variety of assets and people you manage increases, too.

Adopting ADFS is one way businesses have recently managed to significantly plug profit leaks. This is done through improving the way we manage accesses to the plethora of systems and applications exploited daily. Don’t know what ADFS is? No worries; our team has you covered. Here’s our list of key things you should certainly know about ADFS and related systems.

Artificial Intelligence and Its Future Impact on Business

AI_EN.png

Although we often hear about them, artificial intelligences are rather misunderstood by the majority of people. Let us try and explain what they are and where they come from. The idea of an artificial intelligence was first presented by a team of American scientists in 1956 during the Dartmouth Summer Research Project on Artificial Intelligence [wikipedia].

Two main points came out of this presentation: First, it was believed that computers would eventually come to think autonomously, as humans do, and that they would be able to solve problems just as, if not more efficiently. This is in fact what was first referred to as artificial intelligence. Second, the creation of a functional artificial intelligence would be relatively simple; according to the team, such a project would take the summer to a dozen scientists.

Whereas the optimism of these scientists was less than realistic, we must still commend their work and recognize that, as a result of said work, immeasurable advances have been made in the field.
