TSG's service life cycle tool was developed from a business perspective and enables the CIO to optimize a cost effective and controlled cloud transformation.

IT executives are abandoning the “own and operate” management paradigm that has dominated the IT industry for the past 50 years and are moving toward a new management framework built around brokering and integrating services such as the SLT from TSG. Many large fortune 500 companies have successfully implemented SLT and were able to drive accelerated sourcing processes, coordinated cloud transformation and IT cost reductions of more than 40%.
