The ITM Software Story

During the Fall of 2002 the founders of ITM Software, all experience IT leaders, explored a question that had caused them ongoing frustration during their combined 20+ years managing the IT organization in various large successful enterprise companies. Although IT was undoubtedly mission critical to the enterprise, why was it such a challenge for the CIO to successfully build an organization that was truly valued by the business leaders within the corporation? It struck them that IT management challenges were related to running a massively complex business – a business that was comprised of hundreds of employees, close to a thousand vendors, and a large budget.

As it turns out, IT is primarily managed using a collection of complex spreadsheets and in-house developed tools. This "management environment" results in islands of information throughout the IT organization that literally take months to manually compile every time a critical business decision needs to be made. Ironically, while IT has spent years deploying integrated enterprise business application suites for every other function in the enterprise (ERP, CRM, SFA, etc.), they are still using rudimentary management tools. This is what ultimately caused the founders of ITM Software to consider the potential of bringing the promise of enterprise business applications to the IT organization.

This is the premise of ITM Software-that IT is as complex a business as any other within the enterprise and demands the same class of integrated business management applications as do its peer functions. Today, ITM Software is a privately held enterprise software company with a single focus-the success of the CIO and the IT organization. Our integrated suite of business applications and domain expertise in IT business management combine to allow us to uniquely address the challenges faced by today's CIOs-better managing costs, adding more business value, and establishing more strategic partnerships throughout the enterprise.
