Partnering with TPM providers for greater savings
Demand for TPM services is rising worldwide as multinationals seek to optimize capital expenditure and operating expenditure related to their IT infrastructure. With the support of international TPM service providers, corporates can maintain their IT assets and generate savings by extending their useful life.
The Gartner Competitive Landscape authored by research director Christine Tenneson noted that “customers will often switch to TPMs when the original warranty runs out rather than renew the OEM support contract due to significant increases in OEM post warranty pricing.”
According to the Gartner report, “hardware maintenance is increasingly being considered as ‘nonstrategic IT’ spending and procurement, with the result being that IT professionals are seeking low-cost alternatives to expensive OEM contracts and pricing… To achieve greater savings, some enterprises consider TPM support, especially for post warranty data center equipment or for networking equipment at campus or remote locations.” Tenneson explained that “TPM contracts will offer customers an average of 60% savings off of OEM support list prices. However, depending on equipment type, location and product density, Gartner has seen that the range of savings with TPM contracts is 50% off OEM list up to 95% off OEM list.”
