How the “Right to Repair” Movement Applies to Your IT Roadmap Choices

Current OEM policies and support models are designed to benefit the vendors and pose major roadblocks to innovation. Organizations are spending most of their budget, resources, and time on “keep the lights on” maintenance instead of strategic initiatives that drive competitiveness and growth. The “Right to Repair” movement changes that paradigm, putting CIOs and their teams back in the driver’s seat when it comes to decisions about their legacy IT estate.



Special guest Ryan Phair, Partner and Co-chair of the Hunton Andrews Kurth Antitrust and Consumer Protection practice, joins Origina’s Hari Candadai, SVP, Service Innovation and Thought Leadership, in this insightful session on the Right to Repair movement, covering:

  • The impact on choice created by aftermarket restrictions imposed by major hardware and software vendors
  • Promising environmental and economic benefits that can be achieved through Right to Repair legislation
  • How the Right to Repair creates a circular and growing economy, making a significant difference in your IT roadmap decisions

Microsoft Corp., which resulted in a settlement worth over $750 million for his clients.
