Enterprise Application TCO-ROI Assessment

Our Perspective

An RFP does not accurately represent total cost of ownership (TCO).

When examining the cost of an enterprise application, it is imperative to include all implementation costs, including external and internal costs, as well as operating costs over a five-year timeframe.

Quantification of benefits is necessary to determine return on investment (ROI).

In examining whether an enterprise app should be proceeded with, it is critical to quantify benefits in order to effectively examine return on investment.

Enterprise application implementations are often high risk.

Proper identification of risks associated with an enterprise application implementation is imperative to understand possible cost overruns and implement mitigation strategies.

Minimum viability needs to be ascertained.

Before proceeding with an enterprise application implementation, TCO, benefits, and risk need to be examined together to more accurately ascertain minimum viability.
