Moving to the Cloud: Understanding the Total Cost of Ownership


Before adopting any applications for key business functions, executives should perform a thorough total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis. Unfortunately, apples-to-apples comparisons can prove challenging. While it may be tempting to compare the initial license price of on-premises software to the annual subscription fees for cloud computing, this methodology fails to account for the ongoing internal operating costs for the on-premises software. Beyond direct software and hardware purchase and implementation costs, it’s also important for organizations to consider additional business drivers, including infrastructure and resource overhead, maintenance costs, ongoing operations, flexibility, and risk. Download this paper to learn more about how you can estimate the true TCO of cloud applications versus traditional on-premise software.

The Cost of Spreadsheets in Fixed Asset Management


Spreadsheets have become one of the most prevalent software applications used in businesses today, for everything from simple calculations to impromptu databases for tracking a wide range of information, including employee hours, expense reports, and fixed assets.

Many companies use spreadsheets for financial tracking and reporting, but the negative aspects of using spreadsheets for tracking and depreciating fixed assets are substantial.
