ii The Total Economic Impact of Curvature, a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Curvature, August 2013.

Facing shrinking budgets and a constant pressure to reduce costs, IT organizations have been challenged to deploy much more cost-effective solutions, especially with nearly 40% of IT budgets dedicated to infrastructure.i

Curvature commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the total economic impact and potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by acquiring network hardware and maintenance contracts from Curvature.ii

Interviews with four existing Curvature customers and financial analysis found that a composite organization, based on the aggregate findings of these four Curvature customers, experienced ROI at 120%, benefits totaling $1.67M, and cost savings over $915K over a three-year span.
