Business Case Development
Business cases can take varying forms throughout the
planning and budget approval process. Often a high-level business
case is created when a project is conceptualized to substantiate
the anticipated benefits before launching into a complete planning
effort, which many include requirements definition, vendor
evaluation and selection, and ulitmately an solution
Our professionals can work with you to define initial, high-level
business cases. We can also assist you during the planning effort
and drive out a detailed business case to support an
integration project through a budget approval process.
Our approach to developing a detailed business case
takes into account the following:
- Vendor costs, including the cost of the software and
professional services to support the software installation and
- Consulting services provided by us or other similiar,
professional service providers.
- Hardware costs, such as the cost for servers, networking, etc.
- On-going maintenance and support costs (for the vendor and/or
the client's internal support team)
- Summarized capital costs vs. operating expenses
- Tangible benefits, including clearly defined
cost savings and/or revenue generation that can be measured
- Intangible benefits (e.g., mitigating risk
associated with being out of support)
Whether you need to develop an initial business case
to substantiate the need for an effort or are into planning an effort
and need support to develop a detailed business case,
our professionals are well-poised to support you in these efforts.
