Origina vs. IBM: Technical Support

Dedicated, Quality Service

Every Origina customer receives a team of dedicated Global IBM® Experts to support each IBM product in the digital estate. These teams carry an intimate knowledge of the environment due to a comprehensive onboarding process.

At IBM, the support technician servicing each request changes every time – and might even change throughout the course of ticket resolution!

Veteran Product Expertise

Each independent Global IBM® Expert at Origina has decades of experience in his or her product area. In fact, many of them were the original coders behind the solution or formed part of the team supporting the software before the company was acquired by IBM.

These experts have years of experience with IBM products because they’ve previously worked directly for, or alongside, IBM at one point in their careers.

Expansive Skill Set

Among our internationally-based team of Global IBM® Experts, Origina has vast experience and expertise across the expansive range of IBM products. Even when the product under support is found not to be the core problem, Global IBM® Experts remain committed to supporting our customers to identify root causes – and solutions.

IBM technical support commonly asks customers to consult the support teams of surrounding applications if the issue or its solution doesn’t exist solely within IBM’s software.

Asset to IT Roadmap

Origina’s Customer Success team and independent Global IBM® Experts work closely with customers to help them achieve mission-critical priorities in their IT roadmaps. Product migrations, upgrades and performance improvements are all achievable with the help of experienced Global IBM® Experts.

Vendor-provided support from IBM has traditionally stuck to a break/fix software support model. If the event isn’t within the scope of a normal security incident or ticket, IBM does not provide support. Similarly, IBM may require businesses to upgrade their IBM software versions for a variety of reasons, regardless of whether the product upgrade fits into the company’s long-term IT roadmap.

“We’re getting more than we ever did with IBM! Origina help us understand and transform our digital estate, and saved us between 40 and 50 percent off our annual IBM software support and maintenance costs.”

“Origina… helps users of some IBM enterprise software products (such as Websphere and Tivoli) make savings of up to 50 percent annually on their software support and maintenance fees. In addition, by delaying or even removing the need in some circumstances, for forced upgrades Origina say the savings can soar to 90 percent.”
