Avoid the TCO calculation maze.
Doing a full TCO comparison between internal hosting and public cloud can keep IT professionals busy for months
TCO calculations are no easy task – unless you have the TCO-Lite Framework
With the TCO-Lite Framework, there’s no need to get stuck in this complex maze. You get a quick assessment based on your business’ situation, so you can easily overcome cost objections and avoid time-consuming analysis.
Why is it so complex? Because you need to:
- Collect so many data points from so many stakeholders
- Compare internal hosting “owned” resources with cloud “consumption” resources
- Account for variable public cloud costs and incentives
- Quantify the business value of cloud
BEFORE YOU CREATE A FULL TCO MODEL…
Check whether your situation fits a TCO-Lite business scenario
If any TCO-Lite scenarios apply, you may not need a complex TCO analysis. A TCO-Lite assessment can provide a robust business case – and save time and resource on planning.
TCO-Lite business scenario assessments:
Existing hardware is depreciated but the business wants to continue until it’s unusable
Cost of change/re-training is considered too high
Senior inertia scenario
CFO/directors/board are reluctant to invest upfront in a cloud migration
Investment fatigue scenario
There have been recent investments in data centres or hardware
