Software costs and implementation is a critical concerns for corporate businesses, business owners, and project sponsors. However, instead of solely focusing on the cost, it is important to consider the potential return on investment (ROI).
Classifying technology assets as Capital expenditure is common practice. However, it may be more advantageous to view them as Capital investments.
For example, let’s consider an ERP implementation with an estimated ROI of $10 million over five years and an estimated budget of $2 million.

In conclusion, as business owners and sponsors, it is crucial to view software implementations as investments focusing on ROI.
