TCO | ROI cases

Based on a solid TCO case that supports and justify your investment, you take  a decision on an implementation or migration. The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of a system within an IT landscape is the sum of all direct and indirect costs associated with the system over its lifetime. The main cost drivers are hardware and software expenses, implementation and development efforts, as well as the costs of operation.

We see a lot of differences in offers between the different Hardware, consultancy and Hosting/Cloud vendors.

Based on the Business and IT requirements and the roadmap, customers must compare all aspects in detail to know the real costs and responsibilities, to make the right decision.

The components we take into account;

  • Roadmap, possible steps and architecture scenarios towards Suite on HANA, BW on HANA, S/4HANA EM and Analytics
  • Pros, cons and costs for Cloud, Hosting, on premise models for a new environment versus the current costs and responsibilities
  • The implementation or migration costs (including costs for redesign and custom development) based on your current environment and infra structure
  • The needed expertise and trainings to adopt the new technologies
  • Operational costs (technical and functional support)
