IT departments need a framework for managing IT costs at both a strategic level and a daily operational level. IT decision makers can use this TCO calculator to determine if the enterprise can reap TCO benefits from an IT project. This Excel-based tool includes:
- A list of potential TCO cost categories for consideration.
- A fully-functional calculator that allows TCO analysis for IT initiatives, up to three years into the future.
- A dynamic graphical output, so TCO figures can be readily visualized.
The proof is in the numbers. Limit solution procurement risk and perform a three-year TCO calculation to determine if an IT initiative makes the most fiscal sense for the enterprise.
