The need for usage-based cost-allocation solutions is becoming increasingly common among large enterprises looking to charge utilization back to specific departments. For years, IT budgets have been centrally funded because identifying the usage of messages or collaboration tools by department was not possible or not accurate.
Read this paper to learn how to change the centrally funded model into one that operates messaging and replication network like a business – charging for usage of the backbone infrastructure. The paper reviews one organization that enlisted an email and replication solution from DYS Analytics as the foundation of its new cost-allocation system. Reports showing how the costs were incurred, even down to the employee level, and customizable billing statements are now easily produced for usage-based business unit billing.
