New Course – Introduction to ATUM

Blog Post created by milindshinde on Feb 26, 2015


Apptio developed the Apptio TBM Unified ModelTM, or ATUMTM, to provide adaptable best practices for standardized modeling of IT costs and allocations. In this self-paced Introduction to ATUM course, we will examine the three main components of ATUM – Data, Taxonomy, and Model and understand how these components work together.


We will also identify the benefits of ATUM. With Apptio’s TBM applications built around ATUM, you can connect your data to pre-defined and useful reports that facilitate better and faster decision-making capabilities for your IT, Finance and Business Units.


This course is based on information and images from Mark Jones majones whitepaper. Taking this self-paced class will prepare you for the courses that follow in the Apptio University Explorer learning path.  I'm Sandeep Menon  the course developer. I'd love to hear your feedback on the class and I'm happy to answer any questions. Please feel free to post either in the comments below.
