    “Spending $1.4 million on a product that would be shelved in months made no sense at all. We also checked our Cognos support history; our system is stable and mature. We’ve never raised a high priority issue with IBM requiring a custom patch or upgrade. With that in mind, we were confident that Origina could deliver on its promises.”

    Global Pharmaceutical Manufacturer

    “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.”

    Forrester Research

    “Origina rearchitected the environment for a smoother online customer experience and could resolve tickets in less than an hour, vs. IBM which took a minimum of 12 hours. The result? Savings in the tens of millions and better software support service.”

    UK Retail Group

    “Argos Sainsburys – who is the Amazon of UK – were running DB2, Sterling and MQ and had had three years of performance issues at peak time. Origina worked to stabilize the environment in a matter of weeks, while saving it a substantial amount of money.”
