Origina has been helping IBM users reduce their support and maintenance bills for years – and our approach is finally achieving widespread recognition. Pleased with the quality of service received – and the cost savings being created - those same customers have been recommending Origina to their peers.

But now the recommendations are coming from global industry analysts – Gartner and Forrester no less.

Gartner makes impressive savings claims

According to Gartner research, third party maintenance contracts are typically 60% lower than the OEM list price. They also highlight the increased degree of data centre control gained by customers when they exit the OEM-defined upgrade cycle.

And we’re really proud to have been identified by Gartner as “notable vendors in the software TPM market”.

 

Forrester arrives at similar conclusions

Forrester has also been investigating the third party software support industry, particularly as a way to make back-office savings to fund front office innovations. Forrester go as far as highlighting the headline benefits of the Origina proposition – savings of up to 50% on OEM contracts, and the opportunity to “delay or even remove the need in some circumstances for forced upgrades.”

Their summary? “Origina have an interesting proposition”.

For existing Origina customers, these analyst reports are nothing new – they are already seeing the benefits for themselves. But with industry heavyweights Forrester and Gartner acknowledging the benefits of third party maintenance contracts, more businesses are about to start their own fightback against excessive OEM charges.
