Reducing Total Cost of Ownership: Leveraging FIS' Private Cloud Services


Published on

More than 75 percent of the IT budget is spent on maintaining and running software applications, and hidden personnel costs can be as high as 70 percent of the total cost of software. In addition, indirect costs – such as system downtime and interface failures – can amount to more than 50 percent of a system’s total cost of ownership (TCO).

Learn how FIS’ private cloud services can help your firm reduce the TCO of your enterprise systems, scale to growth and optimize performance.
