Most of the leading service desk tools are now offered both as on-premise software and as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS, on-demand, hosted) solutions. This Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) calculator will help IT decision makers determine the most cost-effective delivery model for their organization. The tool includes the following components:
- An explanation of the major cost categories that should be included in the TCO analysis.
- A spreadsheet that dynamically calculates total cost per category, total cost per year, and overall TCO for SaaS and on-premise help desk solutions.
- A chart comparing the two TCOs over a five-year period.
Use this calculator to determine which of the two options is best for your organization.
