Estimating the value of any technology oriented project accurately is critical – for prioritizing limited capital funds and for maintaining IT credibility with business stakeholders. For the past couple years, Intel IT has developed a financial methodology that we use to estimate the benefits of server refresh. Through sharing this methodology, engaging in peer to peer dialogue on project valuation approaches we have been able to modify the savings estimator over time, enhancing it’s capability and functionality.
We have continued to update and enhance the tool over time with feedback from many IT and sales professionals from around the world. The New Refresh Estimator (released Feb 2010) has some significant enhancements to the model and user interface.
This USER’s Forum is intended to help you use the current tool, provide feedback and suggestions for enhancements or get access to earlier versions of the tool.
