We use a method developed over many years based on the science of informational management. It is the ScIAM Worth calculator and - based on a sound theory of information - provides a means to calculate the monetary value of any information system with extreme accuracy. Its core is a proprietary 'double balance sheet' that links balanced informationals with balanced financials. It has been used to cost-justify information systems in many situations.

It is a licensed product.

At Gartner we have long agreed that information has measurable economic value. As part of our research and advisory work on the discipline of infonomics, we have developed a set of valuation models clients use to quantify the potential and realized value of information assets. They help in justifying and demonstrating the benefits almost any kind of IT initiative. Our research also shows how companies that are more "infocentric" are themselves valued more by Wall St. For more on infonomics including articles and links: --Doug Laney, VP Research, Gartner, @doug_laney
