With the rise in internal IT cross-charging and Cloud Based compute resource charging the requirement to take the costs of a System into consideration has become integral in calculating the cost of producing information outputs.
Given these needs we have now added to ability to attach an Hourly Rate to a System node.
When an Automated action is undertaken we simply multiply the Hourly Rate of the system by the duration and frequency of the action that the system carries out.
In the case of a Manual action where you still want to account for the cost of the system that the Person is using to undertake the action, we take both the cost of the the system and the person into consideration.
For a more in-depth description of how the new System Hourly Rate works, along with the new Automated to Manual transitions available in this release please watch this video.
