TBM is a set of best practices for running IT like a business. The goal is for leaders to make data-driven discussions about the cost and value of IT to best support business goals. The state TBM Program managed by WaTech is responsible for establishing the governance, policies, standards, practices, and processes needed to monitor IT investments. (Agencies in the program for current fiscal year.)

TBM Program in Action
The TBM Program monitors statewide IT spending. Reporting through the TBM program includes the IT Spend Biennial Report and the state IT Portfolio reporting metrics.
To facilitate communication between IT, Finance and Business areas, a common language or taxonomy is needed. The state program has adopted an industry standard TBM Taxonomy that's governed and maintained by the TBM Council Board Committee on Standards.
