This Webinar will explore how and when to use emergency cost cutting effectively and how to cut more if austerity continues.

For most, full implementation of these ideas can reduce I&O costs about 10% over twelve months – and 25% or more within three years. Join Gartner VP Jay Pultz on this webinar to learn more!
