Two types of TCO comparisons can be conducted using this tool: TCO of a cloud service vs. TCO of providing a service internally, and TCO of multiple cloud services.

This tool will help analyze factors such as:

  • Integration and installation costs
  • Related facilities costs
  • Cost per user

This tool offers an example tab for each section that provides a real-world TCO calculation; use the example to understand how to calculate TCO for your organization. You can choose to view an example first, or you can start doing your own calculations right away.
