 Back when you were putting together your first presentation to convince BallotOnline’s executives to start using cloud services, you used the AWS Simple Monthly Calculator to do a comparative TCO of estimated costs for on-premise versus off-premise services as part of Building a Business Case for Cloud Computing. Now that BallotOnline has deployed services in the cloud, you can conduct a more detailed analysis of the actual costs for the ongoing use of the cloud services that you implemented. 


Now that you have reviewed the cost calculator, you can use the AWS Simple Monthly Calculator to calculate how much BallotOnline spends on AWS services each month for the selected use cases:

  • BallotOnline website
  • Messaging
  • Disaster recovery and backup
  • IT self-service portal
  • Web application (all on-demand)

 In the last step, you examined the AWS Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Calculator. Now, in this step, you will use it to conduct the TCO analysis for the following BallotOnline-specified AWS deployment use cases, with the monthly costs that you calculated in the Monthly Costs Analysis that you submitted for review in Step 3:

  • BallotOnline website
  • Messaging
  • Disaster recovery and backup
  • IT self-service portal
  • Web application (all on-demand)

 In the previous step, you calculated the TCO for the selected use cases. In that analysis, you sought to understand the complete cost of cloud expenditures by looking at both the purchase and additional costs of operation both within and outside of the cloud vendor.

Now you can continue your analysis by performing a Return on Investment (ROI) analysis, which focuses on costs versus benefits of our investment in the cloud. A favorable ROI will demonstrate to the executives that the migration to the cloud has been a good investment for BallotOnline.

Use your TCO calculations from Step 5 to conduct the ROI analysis for use cases over the next three years:

  • BallotOnline website
  • Messaging
  • Disaster recovery and backup
  • IT self-service portal
  • Web application (all on-demand)


The Final Cloud Portfolio Report will be provided to the executives at the meeting for their future reference. This report will provide a comprehensive cloud TCO and ROI and should be between 14 and 16 pages in length.

Use the Advanced Cloud Portfolio Report Template to write your Cloud Portfolio Report and submit it after reading the instructions below.
