Benefits

Effectively compare alternative business case scenarios

Txture CB makes use of our extensive cloud knowledge base, including cloud-to-cloud product mappings, on-premise technologies to cloud service mappings, up-to-date cloud service prices, and much more. Define cloud strategies that are of interest to you and let Txture CB perform automated business case generation. Compare business case alternatives from various angles and decide with confidence on your way forward.

Leverage automated and flexible data input for business case results

Depending on the client situation, data access to IT assets may be restricted, especially in the pre-sales phases. To help you work on the limited data you’ve got, Txture CB supports a wide variety of data sources and lets you connect e.g. to the client’s accounts with different cloud service providers or upload a custom spreadsheet containing a data dump.

Reduce time-to-commit through automation and decision support

Once you’ve loaded IT asset data into Txture CB, cloud business case alternatives for different cloud service providers, service model preferences, or pricing models are generated in a matter of minutes. This helps you spend valuable time comparing and making quality decisions for your client. Reduce time investments and scale up on deals.

Increase consulting quality through in-depth business case analysis

To support quality decision-making, Txture CB offers various comparison modes on top of business case scenarios. Pick the right scenario to create your offer or discuss with the client cloud cost forecasts, pricing options, target state cloud service portfolios, migration statistics, or custom billing items to get the transformation going.

Use Cases

In case you are provided with data dumps in spreadsheets, Txture CB helps you to easily ingest and map the data as well.

Automatic bill of materials

When kicking off business case computations, Txture CB leverages our extensive, up-to-date knowledge of cloud service offerings across many supported cloud service providers. Txture CB considers all provided data e.g. about client’s computing, storage, or database assets to produce cloud service mappings and expected cost, by using proper asset sizing and technology configurations. The resulting bill of materials is your detailed baseline for conducting further analysis.

Various comparison views

For a comprehensive analysis of your business cases, Txture CB offers several reports and comparison modes.
