Description: The Coca-Cola Company is driving global growth. For that reason, business leaders scrutinize every investment for alignment with growth goals. Nowhere is this felt more than in IT. When Coca-Cola IT reached out to its business leaders for feedback, one of the top concerns was transparency of IT spending. Coca-Cola recognized that delivering transparency would help align IT investments with business priorities and address concerns of the business. In this session, Scholefield will share The Coca-Cola Company's journey to financial transparency and the key insights gleaned from the initiative. This session will cover topics such as understanding the true cost of information technology, changing the conversation between IT and the rest of the business, and rebalancing the IT investment portfolio toward growth.
