Apptio integrates through CoupaLink to tie its industry-standard IT cost model (ATUM®) into the Coupa BSM Platform and provide a framework to accurately categorize and assign technology spend. When new purchase orders are entered into Coupa, users categorize them against Apptio’s IT costing taxonomy. Later, when Apptio ingests the General Ledger entries covering the PO spend, the categorization is used to automatically route the spend through the IT cost model. This reduces IT Finance effort to categorize spend each month, and it surfaces technology spend occurring outside of IT’s cost centers that otherwise might go ungoverned.

With visibility into all technology spend across the enterprise, Finance and IT leaders can make informed decisions about where more oversight is needed and when spend should be incorporated into IT Finance’s calculation of total cost of ownership (TCO).
