ABOUT CLEAREDGE ACADEMY
With 80% of IT budgets tied up in legacy solutions, and little left to invest in innovations that enable the business, it has become imperative to control the power and reach of incumbent suppliers. To ensure that buyers maintain leverage over their spending, clients must elevate the role of IT deal makers. Led by former senior sales executives from Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, EMC and other large IT suppliers, ClearEdge delivers a customizable education program, focused on the unique roles and responsibilities of IT, finance, business and sourcing professionals. The program emphasizes leverage management and is designed to:
Raise awareness of supplier sales systems and negotiation strategies
Equip your team with skills needed to inspect deals for opportunity
Develop leadership to drive the cross-functional alignment necessary to preserve leverage
Approach strategic negotiations from a position of strength
Founded by senior sales executives from large IT suppliers and informed by current market analytics, ClearEdge enables CIOs and their teams to make more competitive IT investments. By combining rigorous inspection and IT financial expertise, we identify risk and opportunity, align internal teams and maintain leverage throughout the life-cycle of supplier relationships. As a result, our clients maximize the value of their investments by unlocking millions of dollars from legacy spending and re-directing funding toward IT modernization, digital and cloud transformation with confidence and speed.
