ComSci and Swingtide Forge Alliance to Help CIOs Achieve Greater IT Management Maturity

Winning Combination Enables Organizations to Maximize Technology ROI

ISELIN, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 -- ComSci, the award-winning technology financial and business management solutions company, today announced its alliance with Swingtide, a consulting firm specializing in technology business and outsourcing advisory. Swingtide has deep expertise in IT sourcing, technology management, and IT finance. This complementary alliance strengthens the offerings that help companies run their IT departments like a business.

Trends such as the consumerization of IT, cloud computing and more marketing-initiated IT spending have created new challenges for today's CIO, setting the stage for more precise IT financial management. As CIOs look to prioritize IT investments, elevate the strategic use of IT and ensure budgets are allocated toward innovation, ComSci's state-of-the-art financial and business management (ITFM) solutions advance those objectives.

"Adoption of IT finance tools, such as those included in the ComSci offering, has been an important step for many of our consulting clients as they move up the service management maturity scale," said Diane Carco, Swingtide's President. "Understanding costs, defining services, and enabling demand management help to ensure that money is spent on IT investments and services that support business priorities." She continued, "ComSci has a proven track record of helping organizations increase IT cost transparency enabling IT to deliver greater technology value and increase organization-wide technology return on investment."

Robert Svec, president of ComSci, commented, "Swingtide shares ComSci's commitment to providing clients with the best expertise and solutions required for the business management of technology. Like us, they recognize that IT financial and business management maturity is a requirement in today's corporate environment, not an aspiration. We are proud to be associated with Swingtide to provide our mutual customers with SaaS-based IT management capabilities that achieve real quantifiable, technology cost optimization benefits."
