Accenture is one of the largest business consulting firms in the world, that acts as a prominent influence in today’s purchasing decisions. In their quarterly Spend Trends Report they spoke about how Third Party Maintenance Providers are creating Saving Opportunities within the Hardware Maintenance.
The Trends Report from Accenture confirmed that Third party maintenance of the hardware can result in significant savings of up to 30% to 60% to the organizations without compromising on the quality. It goes on to ascertain that many top brands depend on the Third party maintenance providers today for an umbrella coverage for their data centers. This is mainly because most of the core service providers do not specialize on the hardware from other manufacturers, in addition to this Third Party Maintenance also offers better savings and better global coverage. Which makes it an easy choice for the core service providers to use the TPM providers than invest in developing an external technology resource. Now comes the all-important question for you “Why Pay more for the same maintenance”?
The report from Accenture clearly stated that
“Although these large hardware providers are ideally suited to provide support for their own hardware, the reality is that most companies have a diverse mix of hardware in their data center. This includes servers from one vendor, storage from another and networking equipment from a third). This makes the primary supplier to always end up using third-party services to support the hardware/ outside its own brand or in certain geographies where it lacks coverage. This prime/sub-contractor model results in higher costs for the enterprise, and potentially lower service levels. This implores the question, why not go for a third-party maintenance option directly than rely on the brands and pay more for similar support services?”
