Everything has a price

*It* has a price. It costs you what it does because it:

  • Accelerates speed
  • Increases efficiency
  • Prevents failures
  • Inspires less errors
  • Innovates
  • Increases possibilities
  • Reduces cost
  • Secures more revenue

Hire that employee with less experience because he costs less? What will inexperience cost you - I would hazard a guess it could cost you 10X the additional salary of someone with more experience. 

Buy that platform that is 1/3 of the price of the other? What will the lack of flexibility, scalability and innovation cost you in the next 5 years of your companies life - I would hazard a guess 10X the difference in licence price.
