    Correct Answer
    A. Actual money that will be saved in the budget
    Explanation
    "Hard Dollar" savings refers to the actual money that will be saved in the budget. This means that it represents the tangible and measurable cost reductions or savings that can be directly attributed to a specific project or initiative. It does not include cash on hand at the end or beginning of a project, or working capital expenditures on a pro-rated basis. Instead, it focuses on the quantifiable financial benefits that result from implementing a particular business case or strategy.

    B. Savings that cannot be accounted for directly in the budget but have a positive impact to the organization.
    Explanation
    Soft Dollar savings refer to savings that cannot be accounted for directly in the budget but still have a positive impact on the organization. These savings are achieved through secondary means and are not directly measurable or quantifiable in financial terms. However, they contribute to the overall efficiency, productivity, and profitability of the organization. Soft Dollar savings can include factors such as improved customer satisfaction, enhanced employee morale, increased brand reputation, and better decision-making processes. These intangible benefits ultimately lead to long-term cost savings and improved organizational performance.

    The baseline for a business case is formed by the current spending on existing applications. This refers to the amount of money that is currently being spent on maintaining and supporting the applications that are already in use. It provides a starting point for analyzing the financial implications of any proposed changes or investments in the applications. By understanding the current spending, businesses can assess the potential benefits and costs of different options and make informed decisions about future investments.

      1

    • C.

      10

    • D.

      5

    Correct Answer
    D. 5
    Explanation
    Software licenses are considered a company asset because they provide value and can be used over a period of time. However, software licenses have a limited useful life due to technological advancements and updates. Therefore, they are typically depreciated over a certain number of years to reflect their diminishing value. In this case, the correct answer is 5, meaning that software licenses are typically depreciated over a period of 5 years.

    Correct Answer
    A. Staff time to support process
    Explanation
    The business case should be baselined based on the staff time required to support the process. This means that the resources and time needed to support the new project should be estimated and included in the business case. By considering the staff time to support the process, the business case can accurately reflect the costs and resources required for the project.

    • A.

      Cost of housing data beyond contract termination

    • C.

      Cost of maintaining contract after termination

    Correct Answer
    B. Cost of sending data that resides on current system to a new system
    Explanation
    When terminating an existing ASP or SaaS contract, one of the costs typically included is the cost of sending data that resides on the current system to a new system. This cost arises because the data needs to be transferred from the old system to the new system in order to ensure continuity and accessibility. It may involve hiring professionals or using specialized tools for the data migration process, which can incur additional expenses.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    How are new software licenses purchased by a company typically depreciated over the time?

    • A.

      Upon initial purchase

    • B.

      1--2 years

    • C.

      5--10 years

    • D.

      3---5 years

    Correct Answer
    D. 3---5 years
    Explanation
    New software licenses are typically depreciated over a period of 3-5 years. This means that the company spreads out the cost of the software license over this time frame, considering it as an expense over multiple years rather than a one-time cost. This method of depreciation allows the company to match the cost of the software with the benefits and value it provides over the same period. By depreciating the software license over 3-5 years, the company can accurately reflect the cost and value of the license on its financial statements.

    Correct Answer
    C. Costs related to system review and approval

    The correct answer is costs related to system review and approval. When purchasing a new software solution, there are various expenses that can be capitalized over its lifespan. These include costs associated with reviewing and approving the system, such as conducting feasibility studies, evaluating vendor proposals, and obtaining management approval. These costs are considered part of the initial investment in the software and can be capitalized as an asset on the company's balance sheet.

    Fees associated with annual ASP or SaaS costs can be treated as an asset by the company?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The fees associated with annual ASP or SaaS costs cannot be treated as an asset by the company. According to accounting principles, an asset is something that provides future economic benefits to the company. However, annual ASP or SaaS costs are considered as expenses because they are incurred for the ongoing use of the service and do not provide any future economic benefits. Therefore, they are recorded as expenses on the income statement rather than being recognized as assets on the balance sheet.

    C. Having a clear and concise requirements definition document
    Explanation
    Having a clear and concise requirements definition document is the key to selecting a system that works for the company. This document outlines the specific needs and expectations of the company, providing a clear roadmap for evaluating and selecting a system that aligns with these requirements. Without a well-defined requirements document, it becomes difficult to assess whether a system meets the company's needs, resulting in potential mismatches and inefficiencies. Therefore, having a clear and concise requirements definition document is crucial in ensuring that the selected system is the right fit for the company.
