For a TCO comparison, how does Alinean develop the chart of accounts used for head-to-head TCO comparisons?

The chart of accounts is the accounting system used to compare solutions when doing a TCO analysis. The chart of accounts line item and hierarchy is developed to be sure that the comparison captures all of the capital and operating costs of owning different solution options over their useful life.

The chart of accounts is developed by experienced Alinean analysts, starting with standard GAAP accounting categories for various business costs, providing subcategories to clearly highlight where costs need to be researched and tallied.
