In the past decade, several cyber-attacks targeting critical infrastructures have been made public around the world. Some of these attacks on nuclear facilities, power grids, oil & gas facilities, or national Internet infrastructures have drawn considerable although ephemeral media attention. Other critical infrastructures of a nation, such as logistics and transportation infrastructures, water supplies, healthcare infrastructures, banking networks or telecommunication networks also constitute potential targets.

Rethinking How We Measure IT Infrastructure Value

Article | April 7, 2020

Planning needs a rethink. Else, IT leaders risk hobbling their companies’ growth potential or becoming blindsided by risks. For many, justifying an IT decision to the CFO or the Board begins with a business case. Often, they use the total cost of ownership (TCO) to convince. Using return on investment (ROI) goes a step further than IT costs and savings, and looks at user efficiency and business effectiveness. Both measures fall short on correctly highlighting the true impact to the business of an enabling technology or infrastructure. Either the metric is too narrow, the timeline is too short, or the investment is not mature enough. It warrants a more holistic approach that looks at multiple aspects of risks, costs and benefits, and compares different components of ROI.
