Total Cost of Ownership

This report shows total overall cost of application ownership, using a stacked bar chart to display the breakdown of types of costs. The example is for total cost of ownership for an organization's applications, but it could be extrapolated to other portfolios or work entities. You can build this report using the design settings in the table below. Alternatively, you can download this report definition and upload it to your PPM Pro instance. Please note that if you use the report definition file to create this report in your instance, the user-defined field used in this example recipe will not be in your instance and you will need to select a Left Axis field in the resulting report.
