Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Completing a comprehensive cost evaluation is a key step when comparing SaaS vs. on-premise hosting models for a new enterprise application deployment. Our Cloud for Utilities Industry Consortium has developed a framework to help utilities in assessing the costs involved with both hosting models over the entire project life cycle. Cost categories to be considered in the planning, implementation, maintenance, and upgrade phases are identified and discussed in detail, and “real world” supporting examples are provided by our two utility partners.
