CapEx‑as‑a‑Service™

CaaS™ changes any technology infrastructure CAPEX purchase into a monthly OPEX subscription, blending the benefits of both purchasing methods around the key areas of Solution Flexibility, Agility, Value for Money, Cash Management, Budget Cycle & Approval Flexibility, Credit Qualification / Availability, and Risk. This allows you to choose technology (HW/SW) that meets your requirements without being limited to existing technical skills or financial constraints.

CaaS™: 

One size definitely does not fill all !!!

 

  • Brand agnostic... Pick any technology or manufacturer that suits your IT needs
  • Leverage the technical resources available from M-Theory to support your solution
LEGACY BUY (CAPEX): 

If you like being a Creature of habit

 

  • Tendency to stick w/what you know since new technologies often require training or headcount
PUBLIC CLOUD (OPEX): 

If you like to do-it-yourself model

 

  • Limited to solutions offered by the provider
  • Processes for migrating away from public cloud are not yet at full maturity
  • No transparency on brands utilized, only resources
LEGACY FINANCE/LEASE (OPEX): 

If you like "the man" helping you with your decisions

 

  • Same as Legacy Buy +
  • Often limited to solutions that are explicitly approved by financing company
  • Credit limitations limit amount of consumption
  • Leases still require assets to be listed on balance sheets and typically require depreciation
CaaS™: 

Seasons change, People change, of course your IT needs change

 

  • Dynamic Hardware /  Software: Swap, scale up, or scale down any solution component
  • Get what you need now, change it as business requirements change
LEGACY BUY (CAPEX): 

You bought it, you own it

 

  • Guessing Capacity: If you under or over or under-sized, you are stuck
  • Lock in: If you picked the wrong solution, you are stuck
PUBLIC CLOUD (OPEX): 

Like a cult, once you're in, hard to get out

 

  • Reclamation of idle resources to save cash requires active monitoring and business sign off prior to decommissioning to avoid production impact or data loss (typically a slow process)
  • Can only add components that are available from provider
LEGACY FINANCE/LEASE (OPEX): 

If too Big to Fail, then definately too Big to Change

 

  • Same as Legacy Buy
  • Additions require a new lease
  • UCCs/Liens on your IT asset purchases
CaaS™: 

All things considered, all things included

 

Includes:

  • Installation / implementation on or off premises
  • Colocation (at no additional cost)
  • 24x7 managed services and converged support
  • Bundled required software
LEGACY BUY (CAPEX): 

Don't forget to add this or that expense

 

  • Installation, colocation, and managed services not included (additional cost).
PUBLIC CLOUD (OPEX): 

Really, it costs how much to move my data out?

 

  • Low upfront costs, but over time scaling and migration costs can be significant
LEGACY FINANCE/LEASE (OPEX): 

Limits on capital availability for soft costs (implementation, software)

 

  • Same as Legacy Buy
CaaS™: 

Our pockets are deep, use our wallet

 

Easy monthly payment schedules enable businesses to buy the solution they need, not the solution they can pay for upfront

LEGACY BUY (CAPEX): 

For richer or poorer: I still have to consider the impact

 

  • Upfront-cash impact
  • Balance sheet implications
PUBLIC CLOUD (OPEX): 

I am not Nostradamus; I can't predict all costs

 

  • Reclamation of idle resources to save cash requires active monitoring and business sign off prior to decommissioning to avoid production impact or data loss (typically a slow process)
  • Controls are limited: since it’s on a CC it can spiral from month to month
LEGACY FINANCE/LEASE (OPEX): 

I like being told what I can do

 

  • Terms are dictated for you
CaaS™: 

Budget, I don't need no stinkin budget

 

  • Monthly OpEx cash outlay is often within IT exec approval limits, avoiding the need for additional corporate approval
  • Allows IT to respond to business needs without being tied to inflexible CAPEX budgets set in stone
LEGACY BUY (CAPEX): 

Don't let the budget cloud loom over your head

 

  • Large solution purchases must be accounted for in annual budget planning; out of budget purchases are difficult to get approval for
PUBLIC CLOUD (OPEX): 

I am a fish, I like bait

 

  • Although incremental increases are easy to consume, costs can grow very quickly
LEGACY FINANCE/LEASE (OPEX): 

Mother may I buy more please

 

  • Large financial commitments must be accounted for in annual budget planning; out of budget purchases are difficult to get approval
  • Traditional leases tie up other business credit lines
CaaS™: 

My CFO has more important things to do

 

  • Simplified approval process
  • Won't tie up existing credit facilities
LEGACY BUY (CAPEX): 

I prefer not to use my capital for growth. I like investing in depreciating assets

 

  • Reduces cash reserves, which may impact ability to obtain additional credit
  • Limits amount you can purchase
PUBLIC CLOUD (OPEX): 

Since I don't have credit, I will take what they give me

 

  • No underwriting process, but options are limited to menu from the service provider
LEGACY FINANCE/LEASE (OPEX): 

I like rejection...

 

  • Traditional underwriting guidelines limit options
  • Leases tie up existing lines of credit that can be used for business activities
  • Exposure limits additional credit facilities
CaaS™: 

No room for complacency, only COMPLIANCY

 

  • Mitigate Strategic Risk: ability to modify solution mitigates risk of over/under sized or appropriate technology
  • Mitigate Operational Risk: M-Theory Managed Services and support staff fill in gaps of employee knowledge & protect against loss of skills due to employee turnover
LEGACY BUY (CAPEX): 

I like being liable for potential mistakes

 

  • Increased Strategic Risk: stuck with what you buy
  • Increased Operational Risk: you need to support new technologies on your own (i.e. train staff, hire new staff, or hire consultants)
  • Increased Financial Risk: tying up operating capital
PUBLIC CLOUD (OPEX): 

Compliar Compliar, my cloud's on fire

 

  • Increased Compliance Risk: Risk of loss or theft of intellectual property, compliance violations and regulatory actions, contractual breaches with customers or business partners
  • Increased Reputational Risk: public cloud data breach requiring disclosure and notification to victims
LEGACY FINANCE/LEASE (OPEX): 

Liability...shmiability...let's gamble

 

  • Increased Strategic Risk: stuck with what you buy
  • Increased Operational Risk: you need to support new technologies on your own (i.e. train staff, hire new staff, or hire consultants)
