Sydney, Australia – June 3, 2021 – Apptio Inc, the leading provider of technology business management (TBM) and cost optimisation solutions, has appointed IT channel specialist, Marie Nalty, to the role of Alliances & Channels Manager for Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ) as part of the company’s commitment to double down investment in its local partner business.

We are committed to work closely with our strategic partners and support them to gain expertise around Apptio solutions to help customers maximise return on their technology and cloud investments.”
