TLA Series: What is TCO?

 

Welcome back to our TLA series.  TLA stands for Three Letter Acronyms, and this is our effort to help explain what they mean.  Today we are covering TCO.

TCO stands for total cost of ownership and it represents analyzing the cost of a solution beyond the initial purchase price and installation. We do this because most systems today have an ongoing cost: annual maintenance, ongoing support, periodic upgrades. So for a company to make a good decision they want to analyze not just the initial purchase price and installation but also the total cost of ownership over three or five years.  

There you have it. I hope you found this helpful. If you have any questions or need additional information, please drop us a line or send us an email.
