Don’t Lose Out on Next Year’s Budget. Use What You Have before It’s Too Late!
In “Five Tips for ‘Use It or Lose It’ Budgets,” Eric Thomas of CIO Insight discusses some ways that IT managers can improve the management of their budget processes. Eric talks about “use it or lose it” from his perspective:
“I often hear [the phrase ‘Use it or lose it’] from my clients. … The phrase relates to their IT budget; if they don’t spend their money in the current year, it goes away the following year. … The impact of ‘use it or lose it’ or, more aptly, ‘spend it or lose it,’ is most acutely felt during the budgeting process.”
