Title (EN) METHOD FOR DETERMINING TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP
(FR) PROCEDE DE DETERMINATION DU COUT TOTAL DE LA PROPRIETE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for determining the total cost incurred per user of information technology (IT) in a distributed computing environment includes obtaining base costs (10) and ongoing costs (12, 14) of an IT system and applying those costs to a series of metrics (24, 26, 28). The metrics (24, 26, 28) are compared against benchmarks (32) to evaluate and assess where cost efficiencies can be achieved.
(FR)Un procédé de détermination du coût total engagé par utilisateur des technologies de l'information (TI) dans un environnement de calcul réparti consiste à obtenir un coût de base (10) et un coût permanent (12, 14) d'un système TI et à appliquer ces coûts à une série de métriques (24, 26, 28). Les métriques (24, 26, 28) sont comparées à des références (32) afin d'évaluer et d'estimer où des gains de coûts peuvent être obtenus.
