Ipedo Releases New Version of ROI Guide
Allows Customized Calculation of Cost Savings from Information Virtualization
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., November 28, 2007 Ipedo, a global provider of enterprise information virtualization software, today released an updated version of its comprehensive return on investment guide for information virtualization projects. 'Determining ROI for Enterprise Information Virtualization' is based on years of experience helping customers successfully complete projects and includes best practices for determining the financial returns.
"There are tremendous savings when organizations use information virtualization to provide better access to critical business data and content," said Tim Matthews, VP Marketing of Ipedo. "This guide provides complete models to help illustrate both cost savings and business upside, and can be used to cost-justify a project or explore whether information virtualization is the right strategy."
Deploying information virtualization generally results in significant increases in analyst, management, and IT staff productivity. This includes both upfront savings from buying off-the-shelf information virtualization software rather than building a custom solution, as well as ongoing savings from improved access to information for more timely and accurate decisions. The return on investment will depend on the cost of implementation, the cost savings the project generates, and the time horizon. 'Determining ROI for Enterprise Information Virtualization' describes how to forecast the cost savings for an organization, based on planned usage and IT environment.
The guide contains five different quantitative models for calculating returns, so organizations can choose the one that most closely matches their technical or business situation. In addition, the guide includes additional qualitative methods that show how information virtualization can provide upside impact to a business.
'Determining ROI for Enterprise Information Virtualization' is available free of charge from Ipedo's Web site at http://www.ipedo.com/roi_for_eiv.html. A companion Excel spreadsheet is also available by contacting Ipedo directly.
