Building the financial case for your next project: ROI + TCO + open source

Learn how to calculate the ROI and TCO of your web development project—with a special focus on the quirks and benefits of open source technologies. You will leave this session with tools to help you make those calculations and make a strong business case to you or your client’s budget owner.

We all (should) understand that IT generates value and isn’t just a process cost center in the digital—marketing, sales, connection—age. Nonetheless, IT projects are expensive and IT procurement decisions are hard. Making the business case to spend large sums of money isn’t easy on something as intangible as IT.

Convincing clients or supporting clients to make the business case for their budget owners is also hard. Beyond advantages like lower licensing costs, removing vendor lock-in, and gaining flexible, extensible architectures, come along and learn how Open Source’s advantages extend even into accounting and the financial performance of your organization.
