Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

Without TCO analysis, companies make far-reaching consequences errors in IT budget calculation and are not able to simulate a reliable transformation scenario.
Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) encompasses all cost flavors in product, equipment or service lifetime. Global TCO must also include both direct and indirect costs to achieve a complete cost.
IT financial transparency major goal is to obtain delivered services TCO to compare it with transformation projects ROI and materialize their real opportunity.
IT cost diversity, speed of change and complexity to aggregate, make TCO calculations unaffordable and non-repeatable. However, IT relies on specific rules that can be automated with a powerful software dedicated to IT financial management for bridging all TCO components.

KP-One computes technology TCO relying on a usage rate that gathers all IT asset cost drivers.
A business case analysis is enabled by comparing analyzed IT perimeter total cost (infrastructure, Cloud, application landscape, workplace, telecom…) with forecasted architecture or delivery model.

You wish, for example, to migrate away from a homegrown e-mailing system to a Cloud provided service

KP-One builds and shows one IT perimeter TCO and compares with forecasted cost computed by IT business rules and anticipated consumptions. KP-One integrates transformation project cost to compute a comprehensive project ROI including break even and payback.
Cloud migration is a standard KP-One use case that allows to track any project benefit, to compute upfront business case and monitor it during project execution.
