Vendor-supplied software support is an expensive fixed cost that limits financial flexibility. Origina's third-party software support model enables companies to reduce their operating expenditures and reinvest those savings into digital innovation and truly realize the return on investment for IBM software.
Savings With Benefits
Cutting costs in critical areas of the business can lead to a collapse in quality or affect operations, and IBM software fits in this category. Origina provides an alternative to rising vendor support costs by introducing a decreasing OPEX model with third-party software support. Starting with a 50 percent annual reduction on software support costs, Origina helps companies maximize the return on investment of their IBM products through a robust, feature-rich service offering that works to extend the software’s lifecycle.
A Forrester Opportunity Snapshot showcases the value companies are currently getting through third-party software maintenance and what their future plans are.
Delivering True Return on Investment
Viewing software support through a fixed-cost lens is important, but is also only taking the expenditure at face-value. Avoiding unnecessary upgrades and decreasing reliance on vendor-supplied enhancements or security fixes can free up valuable resources which may be better deployed elsewhere. Of course, this is only possible if you can source the right independent third-party software support partner.
Origina’s customized support model and dedicated independent Global IBM® Experts work with companies to reduce annual costs but also to extend the longevity of the software in place so the business maintains control of its IT roadmaps and the spending associated with it.
