Supply Chain Cost-cutting Strategies


Process industries (chemicals, food and beverage, oil and gas, etc.) face rising manufacturing and logistics costs. And they’re finding that the old strategies for cost containment no longer pack the same punch. Some surveys show that 75 percent of all respondents are redesigning their supply chains to keep these costs in check. Are you one of them? No? You’ve got a lot of catching up to do—and very little time to do it.

Comparing the Total Cost of Ownership of Business Intelligence Solutions


For many companies, traditional business intelligence (BI) software is costly and resource-intensive. So are open source alternatives that require significant configuration and integration. In contrast, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions can reduce the cost of a BI deployment by providing automation and pre-integration. Compare total cost of ownership (TCO) for traditional, open source, and SaaS BI solutions.

The Impact of Technology on Cost in Business Process Outsourcing


Many different factors contribute to the cost of a business process outsourcing (BPO) engagement. Among them, IT, especially software, is a key cost determinant that is often underestimated. A diligent assessment of BPO needs to address several cost components that are not included in the provider’s total contract value (TCV)—components which are often overlooked by buyers.

Forecasting Total Cost of Ownership for Initial Deployments of Server Blades


For organizations deploying many servers, total cost of ownership (TCO) analyses favor blade over rack-optimized systems. Blade server systems—reducing both capital and operating expenses—exploit economies of scale when deploying servers in volume. Saving power, cooling, and space by more than 25 percent, the blade advantage is particularly relevant for servers working in conjunction with storage area networks (SANs).

ERP: Justifying the Cost


Many benefits accrue from deploying an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Many of these are tangible or quantifiable in nature; you can calculate the savings immediately. However, other benefits may not be quantified so easily, but they are also important.
