Fueled by digital transformation and cloud migration, enterprise IT spend gets bigger, broader, more complex and more strategic every day. Buyers want to ensure the business receives maximum value for every IT budget dollar invested, and the prices paid for technology solutions are fair and competitive.
But the painful truth is, over the next 12 months, enterprises will overpay for 75% of their IT purchases because the category is notoriously inconsistent in pricing and terms.
NPI was founded in 2003 by former enterprise IT vendor executives who knew firsthand that even the most sophisticated IT buyers leave a lot of value on the table. There’s no “Kelley Blue Book” to validate fair market value. Vendor licensing, subscription and program choices are exceedingly complex. And, just when you get a handle on them, they change. The mission: Help enterprises eliminate these blind spots and level the playing field.
Fast forward to today: NPI analyzes billions of dollars of spend annually for clients in all industries that invest heavily in IT and telecom – predominant verticals include financial services, insurance, retail, healthcare, manufacturing, technology and media. Our team has grown to over 300 people, and NPI’s service portfolio has expanded in lockstep with clients’ needs – now spanning six practice areas.
