    This presentation will contrast two service delivery models. The focus will be at the intersection of an IT premised budgeting model (CapEx) and that of a Cloud consumption based pricing model (OpEx). I will review an Activity Based Cost accounting (ABC) system to help demonstrate its usefulness in determining key costs such as unused capacity and rationalizing existing software application life cycles. Additionally, I will demonstrate how ABC also enables you to more evenly compare current costs to equivalent cloud costs. Finally, Cloud pricing models will be examined in order to project extended costs.
