Abstract

Financial pressures are forcing companies to focus on calculating Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of Information Technology (IT) assets and their business value. Hanover Insurance had attempted to develop a TCO model in the past. This model was not implemented due to a limited set of defined metrics. This project proposes a TCO model that includes a larger set of metrics, which allows the company to calculate the costs derived by IT assets and the business value these assets generate.
