Reducing the Cost of IT

I ran across a good post by Ed Carroll called "Reducing the Cost of Engineering/IT" on the CIO forums. He outlines 4 Areas to Reduce Cost. Below are the 4 ways to reduce cost in IT:

  • Simplify the operating structure of the department by focusing on role specialization
  • Reduce cost by simplifying the architecture
  • Reduce cost by simplify the tools
  • Reduce cost by simplifying the development methodology

While I think there are more here this is a great resource to get an idea of what to do in challenging economic times.
