    Key Points and Findings

    Keep it simple and meaningful. Good IT value metrics are easy to track and meaningful to business executives’ operational challenges.

    Value metrics may not be fully under IT’s control. Unlike engineering metrics or performance metrics, value metrics depend on business units’ use of technology to achieve a result. But value is measured in results achieved, not capabilities delivered, and IT leaders should operate accordingly.

    Feel the need for speed. Five of the six common KPIs have to do with accelerating cycle times. Insurers are feeling the need for speed in the face of changing customer and distributor expectations and a highly competitive market.
