We frequently hear from Technology Business Management leaders and enthusiasts how beneficial it is to connect with other IT leaders: share success stories, discuss challenges, and figure out new ways to make TBM work even better for their organizations.

So we thought, how much more valuable would these discussions be if they were ongoing? And that thought led to something big for people leading, engaging in, or interested in TBM – establishing a “digital industry network” for IT professionals to discuss and collaborate on TBM topics like transparency, planning, strategy, and cost management.

With that in mind, we’re excited that the TBM Council has announced the launch TBM Connect, a community for leading IT, finance, and business executives who want to collaborate on standards for measuring, improving, and communicating the value of IT.

As technical advisor to the Council, Apptio was selected to pilot its all-new user community within TBM Connect because of our organization's deep domain expertise. This will be a forum for product discussions led by Apptio customers, partners, and employees. Additional TBM Council partner communities will be introduced over time in an effort to expand the global reach of TBM Connect.

TBM Connect will showcase the foundational techniques, proven best practices, and core processes that define and support the TBM discipline, including:

  • Standards development: Join IT leaders from Global 2000 organizations in a discussion on TBM best practices in measuring the cost, quality, and value of technology investments.
  • Role-specific discussions: Focused content surrounding industry verticals and functions help to develop thought leadership, competency models, research, and customized TBM taxonomies in advancement of the IT profession.
  • Apptio product support and discussions: Read the latest product release notes, TBM success best practices, and connect with Apptio support professionals on Apptio's TBM applications.

Learn more about becoming a TBM Council member and accessing TBM Connect General membership has no cost, but is restricted to qualified industry professionals.

We look forward to connecting with you!
