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




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.
