Financial Management Advanced Study Course

Financial Management is a primary part of an ITAM program and it affects departments across the organization. Financial ITAM is the backbone to savings within your ITAM program, from budgeting to invoice reconciliation. Financial ITAM includes operationally recurring functions: budgeting, fixed asset reconciliation, chargeback, invoice reconciliation, forecasting, financial audit preparation and billing. In addition to those, the Financial ITAM discipline must support a strategic view of IT spending.

The Financial Management Advanced Training Course is based on the information and practices contained in the IBPL Financial Management Volume 7, which shows that Financial Management practices encompass not only the Asset Management program, it also affects an entire organization.

In this Advanced Training Course, students will learn that the Financial ITAM discipline must support a strategic view of IT spending, which in turn must support the overall growth of the organization. Effective Financial Management also will produce baseline information on spending, which allows practitioners to quantify savings found while conducting the processes of IT Financial Management best practices.
