IT Charge-Back and Rate Modeling
As organizations grow and acquire new companies, many shift to a model in which IT charges for internal services. An internal charge-back system may not seem like a big deal, but it opens a Pandora’s Box of questions: How are services defined? How are they priced? How are they costed?
