Getting funding for your IT department can be difficult. Many executives see IT costs only as an expense, rather than a necessary part of growth.

With that in mind, however, one of the best ways for the IT department to make a good impression with the CFO is to optimize the funds you do receive and implement cost saving strategies where possible.
