Just What Should Be Included in a TCO Assessment

Here is a short list of cost factors to include when comparing On-premise and Cloud-based solutions.

Servers
As firms adopt technology to become more agile, the need for servers keeps growing. Server acquisition, along with maintenance, load balancing, performance monitoring and backups all cost time and labour.

Utilities
Firms should include climate control system and maintenance costs in TOC, along with electricity expenses for server rooms.

Network
Don’t forget to factor in network gear, bandwidth and administration costs. The more complex your IT environment gets, the more costs you incur.

Real Estate Costs
Every square foot of cost counts for midsized law firms focused on partner profits. Rather than pay for server space, why not use it for billable hour activity or eliminate that space in your lease renewal?
