The article reports that Troux Technologies Inc. is looking to take asset management to the next level with a new information technology (IT) financial management application that can better measure the costs of supporting an application or a business process. Rather than providing static, assetcentric cost data, the Troux 4 IT Financial Management tool can create a base line that provides "comprehensive total-cost-of-ownership visibility" into an enterprise IT environment and shows "how much it costs to support resources that support business processes," said Scott Bils, general manager for the Troux Business Value Management unit in Austin, Texas. The financial management application,available now, uses the Troux 4 platform, which automatically creates an end-to-end base line of complex enterprise IT environments and associated costs. The platform is made up of a blueprinting system that creates a base line of the IT infrastructure and automatically tracks changes in it, a reference model for describing entities in the enterprise architecture and their relationships to one another, a portal customized for different audiences, a reporting system, and a repository.
