Game Changing Insights Lead to Innovation at FedEx

In an effort to unite operational silos and manage IT spend across business units, FedEx used cost transparency and application & infrastructure analysis to unveil key drivers behind their multimillion-dollar IT spend. This fueled a shift to fact- versus assumption-based decision-making that enabled redistribution of existing run-the-business spending to change-the business initiatives. Examples include decommissioning tens-of-thousands of servers and all associated costs to yield large savings in the infrastructure budget and a transition from decades-old legacy applications to solutions that support cloud, e-commerce, and new ways to work with customers.
