Today, organizations of all shapes and sizes are facing unrelenting pressures when it comes to managing their overall IT infrastructure, especially servers and their maintenance. As a result, there’s never been a better time to end the decades of status quo thinking and adopt a new mindset more aligned with lowering costs without risking performance.
As conventional thinking in server acquisition has changed, so have approaches to ongoing IT and equipment maintenance. Savvy IT leaders increasingly are turning to independent IT service providers for Third-Party Maintenance (TPM) options for greater flexibility, agility and cost savings.
For anyone who has yet to consider joining this groundswell, please answer one question: Are you paying too much for post-purchase support from manufacturers? And here’s the bonus question: Can you afford to pass on big savings?
According to Gartner, “TPM contracts offer customers an average of 60% savings off of OEM support price lists. I&O leaders who restrict themselves to vendor-supplied maintenance may be missing an opportunity for significant warranty and post-warranty support cost savings.”1
