ITIL – Service Strategy – Financial Management
Financial Management covers the function and processes responsible for managing an IT service provider’s budgeting, accounting and charging requirements. It provides the business and IT with the quantification, in financial terms, of the value of IT services, the value of the assets underlying the provisioning of those services, and the qualification of operational forecasting. IT Management responsibilities and activities do not exist solely within the IT finance and accounting domain. Many parts of the organization interact to generate and use IT financial information; aggregating, sharing and maintaining the financial data they need, enabling the dissemination of information to feed critical decisions and activities.
