Providing accounting information
Many corporations depend on a finance department to manage and control finances and costs. IT organizations also need accounting information to manage, calculate, and reduce the total cost of ownership for their IT CI portfolio.
Configuration administrators provide CI accounting information in the Financials tab on the CI Information form:
