Reducing Enterprise Applications Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
A Framework to calculate full life cycle total cost of ownership (TCO) of business applications.
"The aim of this document is to demonstrate the total–cost-of-ownership (TCO) of business applications that derive from the full cycle of an application from development to deployment and maintenance. The TCO is carefully calculated for various forms of deployment and this document compares the TCO for the various forms of deployment and platforms. The TCO of a business application is very much affected by the underlying technology and platform that facilitates its development and deployment."
