Meeting The Challenges of IT Hardware Maintenance Costs

Budget Challenges & Innovation

IT professionals are under increasing pressure to control their budget. Rising support costs from the OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer) adds to that pressure.

Compounding the problem, many financial leaders are slashing operational and capital budgets. This situation can create a difficult relationship between enterprise IT and the OEMs.
