Financial Analysis of Technology Investments
Conclusion: Unlike other parts of business, IT has wrestled with a few financial analysis methodologies. Although those commonly employed work reasonably well, and have currency, it is clear to IT professionals that they are not as good as they might be. That is to say, that despite the application of a financial analysis to technology investments there is still vagueness and uncertainty about the quality of the analysis.
Eliminating all doubts over the merits of financial analysis is not entirely possible, of course, but it is feasible to apply better techniques as to how financial analysis is conducted.
