Capex to opex

Capex to Opex

Apportionment method

“Capex to opex” means the shift from capital expenditure (“capex”) to operational expenditure (“opex”).

In IT, for example, this can be done by shifting on-premise investments (such as the purchase of a server) to a cloud solution or a managed service.

Another example would be renting mobile devices instead of buying them, which is the basic concept in Everphone’s “Device as a Service”.
