Value of Investment and Total Cost of Ownership - Wilson Suite - Session Evaluation

In an era of doing more with less, effective budgeting decisions depend on accurate and complete data. If you are contemplating a BYOD project or using Cloud technologies, how can you determine your costs? And just as important, how do you determine the value of your investment in education technologies? This session will include tools to help you determine the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and the Value of Investment (VOI).
