Despite an overwhelming effort to reduce unnecessary IT costs, many organizations miss out on big IT cost savings each year by prematurely upgrading networking infrastructure and insufficiently scrutinizing ongoing maintenance contracts.
In a new commissioned global study on behalf of Curvature, Forrester Consulting surveyed 304 IT decision-makers and revealed that businesses are blinded to the rewards of extending hardware lifecycles and third-party maintenance solutions when they default to vendor influence.
Join Mike Sheldon, CEO of NHR, and featured speaker Andre Kindness, Principal Analyst at Forrester, for a live 60-minute webinar to discuss:
- Avoiding premature upgrades that can drain your IT budget
- Challenging the status quo on maintenance contracts to tap into cost savings
- Leveraging third-party maintenance providers to find value beyond OEMs
