The ROI Report requires configuration across your TEO server and Reporting Services server
Complete these steps:
In order to import reports to your SQL RS Server, click the Administration tab, and then click Database Settings.
Right-click on Reporting Database > Import Reports and complete the steps in the wizard.
Next, click on Adapters in the same Administration Tab and right-click Core Functions Adapter.
Click the ROI tab, and based on your business research, input the Hourly rate at which it would cost you to run the automated processes manually. Click OK.
For the processes that you wish to track, you need to edit the process and go to the General tab for Process Properties. On that tab, you see a Time saved by the execution of this process input. Input the time value for how many seconds/minutes/hours you save from this process.
Note: This is already defined for included Cisco Content, but if you develop new content it defaults to 0, so then it needs to be configured.
In order to view your report, go to your SQL Reporting Services server, which is normally http://<RS_Server>/Reports and then go to the TEO Reporting link. Choose Core > Operations > ROI Report. Then choose your TEO server and generate the report in order to see your daily cost savings.
