    2424''''' WHAT DOES IT COST?''''' Collecting and displaying data on the web is considered an "enterprise endeavor" and involves much more than simply plugging a PC into a network and installing some software.  The total cost of ownership consists of/is based on the following types of costs (these cost categories are typical for any web data presentation platform):
    25 1. The hard costs - software licenses and computer hardware.  For an IBIS-PH installation these costs range from free (if open source OS, open source web app server, open source database, no realtime SAS queries) to thousands per year (Microsoft OS, commercial web app server(s), commercial database server, SAS server for realtime dataset queries). 
    26   - The IBIS-PH software is free but if you want the SAS real time query capability you will need to purchase SAS.  SAS costs are determined by the power of the server which is determined by the amount of data and the number of users performing concurrent queries (so desired responsiveness).
    27 1. Infrastructure Costs.  This includes all IT charge backs like server, network, IT support charge backs, office space etc.
    28 1. Soft costs.  This is mostly internal labor related costs (internal staff needed to maintain data, management of staff, training), and are present in any organization that collects and provides access to their data.  Most states have several data specialists (some more, others less).  These soft costs typically account for most of the total cost.  These soft costs are present no matter which software and/or approach is being used to share and present an agencies data.  For IBIS, the soft costs are dependent on:
    29 - How many datasets are you wanting/ will need to be maintained?
    30 - How often do those datasets need updating?
    31 - Do you have other content like PDF publications that need to be on the site?
    32 - Do you have secure datasets that require special approval processes?
    33 - Do you have special webpage layouts or designs that are mandated by your organization that will require additional website development or modification?
    34 - How much bureaucracy does your agency have concerning IT, web sites, and data?
     251. '''Hard Costs''' - software licenses and computer hardware.  For an IBIS-PH installation these costs range from free (if open source OS, open source web app server, open source database, no realtime SAS queries) to thousands per year (Microsoft OS, commercial web app server(s), commercial database server, SAS server for realtime dataset queries).

     271. '''Infrastructure Costs''' - IT and overhead.  This includes all IT charge backs like server, network, IT support charge backs, office space etc.
     281. '''Soft Costs''' - labor to maintain content.  The internal labor related costs (internal staff needed to maintain data, management of staff, training) are present in any organization that collects and provides access to their data.  Most IBIS adopters have several data specialists (some more, others less) others rely on STG engineering support.  These soft costs typically account for most of the total cost.  These soft costs are present no matter which software and/or approach is being used to share and present an agencies data.  For IBIS, the soft costs are dependent on:
     29 * How many datasets are you wanting/ will need to be maintained?
     30 * How often do those datasets need updating?

     33 * Do you have special webpage layouts or designs that are mandated by your organization that will require additional website development or modification?
     34 * How much bureaucracy does your agency have concerning IT, web sites, and data?

    3636'''SIMPLE HIGH SUPPORT COST ESTIMATES:'''  If an adopter does not have the needed data stewards or personnel with available time to dedicate to implementing a website and maintaining data then the primary option is to contract with STG (see below) to get engineering support (note that these are all soft costs).  Typically the up front, one time cost could be:
