Techopedia explains IT Cost Transparency

As businesses mature, many discover the need to keep proper track of IT-related expenses. This allows a business to plan its IT growth, allocate sufficient business component resources and identify and address areas requiring improvement.

IT cost transparency is often implemented through a specialized tool that measures multiple factors, such as software utilization, cost upon purchase and return on investment (ROI). Individuals that execute IT cost transparency processes should have a thorough understanding of accounting or business management.
