24.08.2015 - 09:47

Finnish Aalto university has improved operational efficiency and effectiveness by optimizing the university’s use of resources and assets. This was achieved by making informed, educated decisions on IT investments, which in turn lead to IT budget cost savings worth €4,5 million within the first year of implementation - this figure represents a 12 percent cost saving from the annual IT budget.

The starting point for this case study is the decision to merge three independent universities in Finland with the vision of forming one institution of higher education recognized internationally for its contribution to the academic communities of science, art, and learning. This 10 page case study is written from the perspective of Aalto IT management, focusing on the challenges it faced when strategic leaders decided to drastically change the course of business.
