Since the 1st of July 2019, IBM no longer own or continue to support Appscan, BigFix, Unica, Commerce, Portal, Lotus Notes & Domino and Connections as they have sold 7 of their legacy software systems to Indian based company, Hindustan Computers Limited (HCL).

What you contracted with IBM is now being managed and supported by a 3rd party, who has already indicated that they will raise maintenance contracts costs from the start of January 2020. Since you are now forced to use a 3rd party support provider, why not explore all your third party options.

Origina is the world's leading, independent, 3rd party IBM software support provider. We not only cut your IBM support costs by at least 50%, we provide award winning software support. When you call us, you speak to the experts, not a call center with a set list of answers.

“This service is 100% better than what you get from IBM. With IBM you just get the standard answer. With Origina they understand the customization's we have made to each product."
