Efficiently Assessing the IT Business Value of Diverse Investments

Executive Overview
As part of an evolution in how we assess IT business value for investments, Intel IT and Intel Finance have developed a framework that is faster and more scalable than our previous processes. Intel IT’s new Business Value Assessment (BVA) methodology provides a balanced assessment to support budgetary decision making without requiring absolute dollar-value calculations. BVA uses a survey-based method to determine both financial and nonfinancial performance metrics and then compares those metrics against acceptable risk levels and available resources.

The methodology prioritizes IT projects to get the greatest IT business value from the investments within—and across—various businesses or service areas, such as sales, marketing, product development, factory automation, and business intelligence. Using the Business Value Assessment, Intel IT performed a pilot program to analyze the business value of the entire Sales and Marketing IT portfolio of proposed projects in two weeks—something that could not have been accomplished with previous approaches.
