6fusion announces Advisory Group for IT Economic Benchmarking

6fusion, the company delivering IT financial intelligence for the Enterprise market, is pleased to announce it’s new Advisory Group for IT Economic Benchmarking. The Advisory Group, launched at the TBM 2015 Conference in Chicago, is chartered with creating standard benchmarks for IT Economics that will enable critical transparency and market insight among Enterprise organizations adopting a utility approach to IT Financial Intelligence.

6fusion’s patented standard unit of measure, the Workload Allocation Cube (kWAC) will serve as the foundational measurement unit for benchmarking and consumption economics for Advisory Group member organizations.

The Advisory Group will be Co-Chaired by Richard Donaldson, Director Infrastructure Management & Operations, eBay, a key proponent of quantifying IT Economic Efficiency, and leading voice for industry standards and benchmarks to help Enterprise IT groups justify investment and demonstrate their value.

"Workloads are diverse but when expressed in a ‘common currency’ like the WAC we gain apples-to-apples comparability,” said Mr. Donaldson. “We are excited to work with the community to establish standardized benchmarks to enable us to compare ourselves against an important community like TBM."

The Advisory Group will be comprised of member companies and IT economics experts committed to moving beyond static IT Financial Management to the real-time dynamics of IT Financial Intelligence. Advisory Group membership fosters opportunities for members to connect with peers and work collectively to set the new global standard for IT efficiency benchmarking and to understand their organization’s financial picture in the context of a connected utility marketplace.

This initiative will be co-lead by Rob Bissett, Chief Product Strategy Officer, 6fusion and Richard Donaldson, Director Infrastructure Management & Operations, eBay.
