Challenging the Status Quo on Maintenance Contracts and Refresh Cycles to Lower Costs

Study Reveals Businesses Unknowingly Pass Up On Big IT Cost Savings

Despite an overwhelming effort by businesses to reduce unnecessary IT costs, many organizations miss out on big IT cost savings each year by prematurely upgrading networking infrastructure and insufficiently scrutinizing ongoing maintenance contracts.1

This 13-page commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Curvature recommends:

  • Avoiding premature upgrades that can drain your IT budget
  • Challenging the status quo on maintenance contracts to tap into cost savings
  • Leveraging third-party maintenance providers to find value beyond OEMs
  • And more!
