EoSL can be a four-letter word for IT managers. After all, those four letters stand for “End of Service Life.” It’s the acronym IT managers think means an inevitable increase in cost or choosing to keep equipment unsupported. But research says this doesn’t have to be the case. Through OMNIA Partners, Private Sector, Curvature can help plan so that End of Service Life does not always need to mean end of service.
What is your current hardware procurement strategy? Are you simply doing things the way they’ve always been done?
What if you looked at your IT environment through a different lens—one that focuses more on what best suits your business and budget? See how Curvature can offer members a better way to fix their hardware and maintenance strategy through OMNIA Partners, Private Sector.
When your enterprise initially purchased your IT hardware the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) likely provided a warranty to help you protect your investment. But once that warranty expires how do you handle maintenance? How do you continue to maintain hardware reliability and cost competitiveness without adding risk to your operation? A third-party maintenance provider (TPM) can help extend the life of your IT hardware without practicing the dreaded ‘rip and replace’ motto that many OEMs operate under.
Year over year procurement is challenged to cut, cut and cut more spend. Reducing spend becomes increasingly difficult after you have squeezed as much as you can out of your current programs and contracts.
