TOOL: Windows 10 Enterprise Value Calculator

Windows Enterprise_thumb[1]We produced an online tool with a partner called Alinean, called the “Windows 10 Enterprise Value Calculator” (aka Benefits Estimator) to enable people to see how Windows 10 can provide savings to their businesses.

WHAT IS THE CALCULATOR?
The Windows 10 Enterprise Value Calculator will help organizations assess the return on investment (ROI) and total cost of ownership (TCO) of implementing Windows 10 Enterprise.

BEST PRACTICES IN USING THE CALCULATOR
When going through the calculator and entering plans, remember that predictions are inherently uncertain, therefore we recommend that you create at least 3 different calculations with different scenarios: An Expected Case, a Low Case, and a High Case.  Use the calculator 3 separate times and produce a report for each scenario.

Business cases should be conservative.  When you enter the assumptions, profiling data and statements in the calculator, overstate costs and understate benefits

Soft cost like productivity gains should be included as a scenario in the business case.

When you evaluate the ROI and TCO from the report, compare the calculated ROI to your organizations hurdle rate, for example your internal rate of return (IRR).

TRY IT
To start using the calculator, register at the following site and begin.
