Gartner releases reports titled, “Competitive Landscape: Partnering with Third-Party Maintenance Providers for Data Center and Network Maintenance Cost Optimization” and “Market Guide for Data Center and Network Third-Party Hardware Maintenance,” both authored by Christine Tenneson
CentricsIT has been helping its clients maximize their investments in the data center for more than a decade, and a significant part of our strategic approach is identifying opportunities to reduce maintenance spend. We’ve helped companies of all sizes, from every vertical, realize maintenance savings from 40-70%.
Maintenance and support costs are widely known to comprise around 70% of the average company’s IT budget, leaving very little room for upgrades and investments in future-ready technology. Maintenance costs can cripple innovation, which can have serious ramifications that no organization can afford. Network and data security is just one of many critical areas of investment that suffer when maintenance costs become overly inflated.
For this and other reasons, many IT leaders have turned to third-party maintenance (TPM) providers like CentricsIT to replace or augment their existing OEM support contracts.
In July 2017, Gartner released its Competitive Landscape report for Third-Party Data Center and Network Maintenance. In August, the research firm released its Market Guide for Data Center and Network Third-Party Hardware Maintenance. CentricsIT is among the solution providers listed in both reports, and its leadership team expressed support for the Gartner research.
“We’re pleased to see Gartner independently evaluate third-party maintenance as a solution for cost optimization in the data center,” said CentricsIT President and CEO Derek Odegard. “We have been a thought leader in this space for more than 10 years and recommend that all our clients strongly consider TPM when looking to realign IT priorities and redistribute spending.”
CentricsIT provides third-party maintenance services to a wide range of diverse end users in more than 80 countries. The company also provides complementary hardware procurement services and IT asset disposition solutions to offer a versatile bundled service.
“We’re honored to have CentricsIT included in Gartner’s Competitive Landscape for the second consecutive year, and we were happy to participate in the research for the TPM market guide this year as well,” Odegard added.
