Our management are very interesting to have a view of Cost of each application. Costing modelization are quite complexe … some application are CAPEX some are OPEX … some have shared ressources (and shared cost).

Who have do something interesting on the “cost” application topic ?

Hi Stephane,

I’m exploring a simple option to show the potential savings from decommissioning applications that are TIME: Eliminate but still Lifecycle: Active. 

Rather than calculate the Total Annual Costs from the underlying IT Components (which as you say is complex to model), I’ve just added an Annual Contract Cost to the Application factsheet. I’ve also added a Contract Expires In indicator to give a sense of urgency to realising the savings. 


Potential cost savings from decommissioning applications marked Eliminate but still Active. (Dummy data used.)


I’ve thought about adding more fields to the Application factsheet in line with the TBM Cost Pools. The costs would imported in LeanIX as read-only fields as supplied by our Finance team. Ideally, I would then derive the Total Cost using the proposed Inventory: Configure calculated fields feature (currently in voting on the Product Roadmap).

Happy to chat 1-on-1 if that helps.

Hi again @Stephane Peiti, I found this Total Cost Of Ownership presentation from the LeanIX Connect Summit Americas East 2023 that you might find interesting. 

How have you progressed in the last few months?
