With all the different types of enterprise software packages on the market, it's important to not only make the right choice for today, but also one that makes the most sense when it comes to total cost of ownership -- or TCO -- over time.
However, many organizations don't consider TCO, but instead only look at the upfront costs of choosing a software application. While this approach can be straightforward it is short-sighted.
Organizations need to look at the big picture and include unplanned events into their TCO model by asking if the software is flexible enough to adapt to changes such as new regulations, different business strategies and new market opportunities.
With a comprehensive TCO strategy, you'll be able to measure your ROI beyond cost savings. You'll also see benefits add up on things like business growth, customer acquisition and engagement, time to market, and increased service delivery quality. Appian software can answer all your TCO needs when it comes to finding the most agile BPM applications that result in the best long-term ROI.
