About Us

Customer Focused, Experienced, & Reliable Low Risk Third Party IBM® Software Support Specialists

World's leading, independent, third party IBM® software support specialist.

Origina deliver a vastly improved customer-centric support service for IBM® software products, using many of the same independent technical resources that IBM® currently does but at a significantly reduced cost. Our service is based on your support needs and this need is reviewed on a yearly basis, as opposed to inflexible long term contracts. Additionally, access to expertise through Origina is often significantly quicker.

By harnessing the power of the collective support ecosystem, in addition to our extensive internal technical expertise, we have evolved from our origins as an IBM® Business Partner to become the only credible alternative independent provider of software support & maintenance for IBM® software products.

Headquartered in Dublin with locations throughout the world Origina delivers value-based and cost effective services to a wide spectrum of international customers.
