Cost-Delay-Quality Decision Scenarios
This is a major objective of a global FinOps approach, helping to achieve the right trade-off between the 3 dimensions: Cost, Speed, Quality.
To be able to make the right choices, it may be useful to set up a scoring of optimization opportunities based on weighted impacts including :
- Business impact
Let's take an example with 3 scenarios:
|IMPACTS||POIDS||SC. 1||SC. 2||SC. 3|
By comparing each score for each dimension we can see for example that scenario A represents the best impact on costs and time-to-market.
But by calculating the weighted scores we realize that, in our specific case, scenario C is the best, in terms of total score but also because it has only positive or neutral impacts.
With a representation of this type, one can compare for each dimension but also the total. It is also a demonstration that one must remain vigilant in the way information is presented, in order to be able to make the right choices adapted to the company.
