Controlling the Cost of File Transfers

The term total cost of ownership or TCO describes the full investment required to acquire, install, and maintain an application. We often think of TCO when making a large initial investment in a new system. It also applies to situations that involve minimal startup costs but substantial ongoing costs.

Homegrown file transfer solutions are a prime example of the minimal startup, but substantial and ongoing cost scenario. This solution brief explains why something as seemingly simple and straightforward as a file transfer task turns into such a costly operation. It also describes how Attachmate FileXpress alleviates those costs and continues to meet enterprise needs long beyond the lifespan of resource-demanding homegrown solutions.
