The Technology Business Management (TBM) Framework defines the standard elements for managing the business of IT. It describes organizational considerations, core disciplines, value-optimizing decisions, and performance-based culture that comprise an effective TBM program. The framework also provides the structure for the forthcoming TBM Book.

The TBM Framework's disciplines and capabilities provide benefits such as:

  • Translating costs into actionable insights for both business and IT leaders
  • Accelerating IT planning and communicating the budget in business terms
  • Replacing emotions and assumptions with facts about value and tradeoffs
  • Building trust and changing behavior with defensible cost allocations
  • Optimizing costs and rationalizing portfolios of apps, vendors, and more
  • Improving agility by providing levers to effect change more quickly
  • Aligning technology spending and investments to business priorities

The TBM Framework is currently undergoing its second iteration based on input from TBM Council members, partners, and the technical advisor.
