Adding It Up
Calculate the Cost of Build vs. Buy
Our total cost of ownership (TCO) calculator helps software developers assess the direct and indirect expenses of "rolling your own" Linux software compared to going with the full portfolio of development and maintenance offered by Wind River.
The calculations are based on what our customers have reported. In many cases they have been able to reduce production and maintenance costs by as much as 98 percent and accelerate build cycles by more than 30 percent compared to in-house efforts.
