The cost model is introduced in the following newsletters.
Using the model
The model asks 15 questions about your IT costs, how your costs are broken down, and factors that affect your IT costs.
The model explains each of the questions in detail.
Most of the questions are easy to follow. Three of them are a bit more subjective, and may be worth thinking about before you try the model.
When you have entered your figures, click on Calculate. Your results will be shown in a table.

Understanding the results
Here are some sample results
The first column of figures shows the costs that you entered. They are broken down to estimate how the costs spread over different activities.
The notes show how revised figures are calculated. The cost model provides a key to the notes.
The last three columns show the reduced costs, the saving, and the saving as a percentage of current costs.
We would like to include your figures in our survey, to understand how businesses in different sectors and different countries can reduce their IT costs.
If you would like to take part in our survey, fill in the form below the results on the model, and click on Submit survey.
The model runs entirely on your browser. The figures you enter and your results do not leave your PC. They are entirely confidential.
If you choose to take part in our survey, your figures and your results will be sent to us. We will keep your details confidential. See the survey form for more information.
