Info-Tech's Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) comparative analysis tool gives enterprises an objective, quantitative approach to the build versus buy decision. The following components are included:
- Cost categories summary. Descriptions of the key cost categories that should be included in the TCO analysis.
- TCO comparison table. A worksheet that automatically calculates total cost per category, total cost per year, and overall TCO for building and buying.
- TCO comparison graph. A dynamically generated chart comparing the two TCOs (building and buying) over a five-year period.
Use this tool to ease the pain of the build versus buy dilemma by automating the cost calculations and chart creation.
This downloadable tool is associated with the research note, “Build vs. Buy: Concentrate on Costs.”
