Welcome to the Microsoft Branch Office Savings Calculator

The Branch Office Savings Calculator was developed independently by leading IT research firm IDC, and leading ROI tool developer Alinean, Inc. This analysis tool helps customers examine current opportunities for headquarters and branch office productivity and performance improvements, and quantifies potential benefits from implementing Microsoft Windows Server 2008 for file / print services and Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) server.

The tool collects specific information about current branch server costs and opportunities for improvement, then uses research by IDC to project potential costs and benefits for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 solutions and ISA Server solutions. All research was collected from actual Microsoft early-subscriber customers and reflects typical costs and savings for similar company type and size.
