Full Costs Break Down duringproduct life cycle1. Selection2. Acquisition3. Operation4. Change Management5. ReplacementIF CIOs / CTOs cannot make propercomparisons between different technologies,strategies and solutions
What could happen if we make badbuying decisions?● Lost of opportunity (cost)● Lost of quality (any guarantee offered?)● Lack of security (data lost)● Incompatibility with new emerging systems● Expensive reparation● Expensive replacement● ...
Benefits for Enterprise● Proven large scale deployments● Strong security, 35 dedicated developers● 2 big annual international conferences, thousands of regional camps & meetups (Drupal Hanoi Meetup regular)● Great SEO● Integration with other technologies, services
Summary● As CIOs/CTOs make cost/benefit analysis with TCO and select right solutions● Consider whole cost of software during complete product life cycle.● Purchase of software is only about 10% of total (ICEBERG)● Drupal is a trusted solution for Enterprise and Government to reduce TCO
