What is Cost Transparency

Much like an iceberg, costs of a system can get "hidden" over time.

Cost Transparency is the discipline of surfacing the "true cost" of an undertaking or endeavour.

The endeavour could be a "capability" such as 'Cloud Operations' or a "system" such as an 'IT Application'.

For example, the typical components of a system such as the direct and indirect infrastructure (servers, storage, network) are "hidden" over time with only the people component visible.
