Gain control over your IT costs

One thing that many IT organisation (shops and or departments), no matter their size, tend to struggle with is calculating the exact cost of their operations including e.g.:

  • Software license
  • Software maintenance
  • Hardware (incl support and maintenance)
  • Operational costs
  • Salaries
  • Other expenses.

I have seen this many times during my almost 17 years in the IT industry. Having control over your cost is important for every IT organization and becomes even more important when you are a service provider and try/must make money. In that case cost control and cost definition essentially determine if you will succeed or not since you need to make sure the price for the VM, App and or service you’re selling is correct. Must not be to high since no one will buy the service and and not to low so costs are not covered.

If you don’t already have a way of calculating your total costs or if you’re willing to give it another try and see if you could make any relevant changes i wanted you to know that VMTurbo has just released a spreadsheet that can help you with this.
