The Problem

DAS PROBLEM

LE PROBLÈME

With a new data warehouse planned for the organization down the line, the company wanted to maintain their old and stable Cognos estate until their transition occurred. In addition, upgrading would be an unnecessary drain on resources given their future strategic plans. As the IBM renewal date approached, their annual software maintenance was increased significantly, so their IT Vendor Manager decided to explore alternative options.

“The Origina team is so much more engaged than IBM. Origina wants to talk to us every quarter and do regular check ins. I have a very high opinion of all the Senior Leaders in Origina.”

The Solution

DIE LÖSUNG

LA SOLUTION

After consulting a Gartner Analyst, the company was recommended to consider Third Party Providers (TPP) for software support, specifically Origina for their IBM estate. Following an introductory call with Origina, where the process and services were explained, Origina set up for a call between the company and a current Origina client who had been placed in a similar situation by IBM. Likewise, the client had a contained product that was stable and only required maintenance, but they were being forced to upgrade and dramatically increase their spend. After this open dialogue, additional calls with a current client and Origina’s IBM subject matter experts, the company confidently made the decision that switching their software support to Origina would be the best strategic, support and financial decision.

“The biggest success is the cost savings. The cost savings let us deploy those budget dollars to projects that can carry forward our business. We spent that money on business projects that can change the business rather than a support contract that didn't have the same effect.”

With cost savings on this system of over 50%, the allocated budget could be used on alternate strategic IT projects.
