Navigating Budgeting Constraints with IBM Power Systems and Storage
Let’s face it — 2020 hasn’t been the most stellar year for a lot of companies. There is still uncertainty about what will happen COVID-19 and the rest of the year. As a result, some companies choose to hold on to their cash and not make capital purchases. Others have frozen their budgets.
With the end of life for the popular E4D coming on December 31, 2020, many IBM i shops face Extended Support. This support is limited in scope. You can only get a contract for 12 months, and there are no guarantees. IBM Extended Support is better than IBM’s no option, but it’s not the best solution.
If you’re one of these companies struggling to navigate budget constraints in 2020, we have a suggestion: financing. If you’re not worried today, but you want to hold on to your cash, financing is also a fit for you. Do you refresh your hardware on a regular three to four-year cadence? Financing will save you money.
