Why you should care about Total Cost of Ownership

Guest blog written by Leigh Carpenter, WW HP Servers ROI/TCO Manager


Mention Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) or Return on Investment (ROI) and most IT people cringe. Having been a technical person my entire career, I can relate, but as we all know nothing is more constant than change. So here I find myself leading the charge for HP Servers on the TCO and ROI front and I'm happy to share that HP has developed a new tool that can help you determine your potential savings.

Looking at adding, upgrading or refreshing your Servers? Calculate the Benefits!

Many decision makers fail to look beyond the up-front investment. Before you decide on a new IT platform that will align with your organization’s business strategy, be sure to assess all direct and indirect costs involved over the entire lifecycle. HP has worked with Alinean to create easy to use tools for TCO/ROI analysis that will help you build the business case for evolving your IT infrastructure.
