  • Website for Economic Efficiency Assessments
    especially designed for ICT projects
    WiBe is more than TCO, it's TCBO Total Costs and Benefits of Ownership
    WiBe is the recommended official framework for the German Public Administration
    WiBe is a registered trademark of WiBe-TEAM PR Dr. Peter Röthig

  • Designed 1992 for public administrations at federal, state and municipal levels in Germany, WiBe today is internationally acknowledged for its reliable economic efficiency assessments of ICT projects, applied in a growing number of countries within and beyond Europe

  • WiBe is a powerful tool for software solution providers: it helps to prove the efficiency of any software/hardware solution (if this solution is really as efficient as the vendor claims it to be) - WiBe uses the customers own data, transparently documented and easily retraceable. And: WiBe is internationally acknowledged.

  • WiBe fosters better procurement activities: as a comprehensive framework it does not only ask for once off costs, but takes into account operating costs and benefits, too. All monetary evaluations result in the NPV net present value of the measure.

WiBe – what it is

Investments in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) aim at improving the overall efficiency of the agency and enterprise – a logical demand in times of scarce financial means. Arriving at a consensus is not always simple, and thus not surprising that assessment of economic efficiency leads to frequent discussions between ICT managers and the management board.
Planning and approving ICT projects requires founded, methodical calculation and documentation of pending costs and anticipated benefits – not just an examination of a project’s feasibility.
