Calero thought-leaders present at Financial World of Information Technology Conference in Orlando

Rochester, NY (March. X, 2018) — Calero, a leading global provider of Cloud and Communications Lifecycle Management and managed services, including Telecom Expense Management (TEM), Managed Mobility Services (MMS) and Usage Management (UM) solutions, will present at the upcoming Financial World of Information Technology Conference in Orlando, Fla. The conference is organized by the IT Financial Management Association (ITFMA) and will be held at the Gaylord Palms Resort from March 19-23.

Larry Foster, head of product strategy and vision at Calero, and Anthony Mancuso, director of analytics at Calero, will present how the latest advancements in business intelligence are changing the IT lifecycle management paradigm for enterprises by enabling greater insights and visibility into their information communications and technology spend.

“Based upon a 2Q17 Forecast Analysis from Gartner on IT Spending Worldwide the spectrum of premise and cloud-based digital services represent over 50 percent of total IT spend globally. Providing timely and accurate accountability of consumption-based services is notably one of the most critical management responsibilities,” said Foster. “Without the right tools and insights, financial managers and controllers lack the level of visibility required to conduct timely root-cause analysis, or understand how to accurately predict and accommodate cost changes or seasonal variability. This is especially true for complex spend categories like usage-based network spend, enterprise mobility and cloud computing where pricing complexity is increasing to mirror varying contracts and business model requests,” continued Foster.  “Embedded guided analytics solutions, like Calero’s InSight Analytics unify vast amounts of data and provide an intuitive and powerful way to enable self-discovery through a combination of hierarchical theme-based visualization tools to help finance professionals quickly glean meaningful insights to optimize areas of spend and business service operations.”
