    Paul Getty, one of the world’s richest men said

    “If it appreciates – buy, it;

    if it depreciates lease it.”

    Or in this instance, rent it.

    Change to an Operating Rental / Lease model

    “There has been a longstanding tradition in most ICT departments to want to own the technology they deploy. Changes in both the economy and technology in recent years, however, are putting pressure on this tradition.

    More than Accounting: Changing to an opex model is more than an accounting manoeuvre, it brings about a fundamental change in the way IT and ICT is procured and financed.

    Key difference: Who owns the technology and how it is financed; -with Capex you own the asset. With Opex, someone else owns the technology and you just pay to use it.

    Positioning: By getting long term ICT costs woven into annual opex budget, they become positioned alongside other core costs of sale which can shift quickly to engage in new technology opportunities as they arise.” Greg Barker

    From the Greek sun-ergo, meaning working together. A term used to describe a situation where the final outcome of a system or endeavour is greater than the sum of its parts – a dynamic state in which combined action is favoured over the sum of individual component actions.

    It is through synergy and responsible policies that we will achieve our mission to create sustainable wealth for all our stakeholders.
