Business leaders often grapple with justifying investments especially when there is great uncertainty relating to both cost and return. Understandably so, since the repercussions of an incorrect ROI assumption not only hurts organizations with lost opportunity of time and money but also discredits leaders. This is true of enterprise software projects.
To solve the problem, leaders create business cases that justify the investments. Often, these documents focus mostly on intangible benefits that skirt the hard numbers required to build a defensible business case. Well-designed ROI calculators can help solve this problem.
Robust ROI calculators are not easily available. Organizations may not have internal resources to build these and readymade templates are either not comprehensive or not easily customizable.
