Why is this Calculator necessary?

When you are adding QSCIM into a new or even existing Identity Governance Project, it’s essential to highlight that even economically speaking, our platform can be a game changer not only for accelerating your IGA initiative but also work as a definitive and secure insurance to protect your investments against vendor’s lock-in.

What does compose an Identity Governance Project?

Any IGA project is composed by:

  • Software Licensing
  • IGA Integration Project
  • Software Support Maintenance Fee—A percentage to maintain Software Updates, Vendor Support, and SLA. Usually, it represents 15% to 25% of Software Licensing Costs.
  • Existing Integrations Maintenance and new ones – Usually, it represents over 30% of the cost of initial project implementation Cost

Where can QSCIM help?

QSCIM accelerates the first project, reducing over 60-70% of the estimated project costs and over 50-60% of the time. This agility and flexibility are reflected when the customers want to maintain existing integrations or even create new ones over the years, while traditional approaches take over 30% of initial maintenance implementation costs, while integrations made with QSCIM take over 10% to 20% of the cost of the initial projects.

Project Costs

Traditional Integration Project: 500.000
QSCIM would cost: 150.000


Traditional Approach: 150.000
QSCIM: Would cost (20%) : 30.000

For the 5 years demonstration, we are using the following formulas:

Traditional IGA Project with Locked-in Integration : Software Licensing + Traditional Implementation
With QSCIM: Software Licensing + Integration Implementation with QSCIM + QSCIM Subscription
For the 1st Year
Traditional IGA Project with Locked-in Integration: Support/Updates Fee + Traditional Maintainance
With QSCIM: Support/Updates Fee + QSCIM Maitainance + QSCIM Subscription
For year 2 to 5

Check this chart, based on the following data:

  • Licensing Cost: $1,200,000 USD
  • Support Fee : 22%
  • Traditional Implementation Project: $900,000
  • QSCIM Annual Subscription: $150, 000

Protecting you against vendor Lockin

Imagine that during these five years, in the third year, you have to replace your IGA Software. Besides new licensing costs, keep in mind that the integrations that you have created using the IGA proprietary SDKs and libraries will not work on the new IGA solution. However, if you opt for using QSCIM, this kind of migration is automatic.
