“When we needed to upgrade our IBM Power System from version 5.4 to 7.1, we chose to use iTech Solutions because of their knowledge and wide experience in upgrading IBM Power Systems. Everything was carefully planned before the upgrade. The upgrade went as planned and a few minor problems were quickly resolved. We are fully satisfied with the entire process and will again at any time choose to use iTech Solutions.”
