Headaches with multiple hardware maintenance contracts?

multivendor server maintenance

As businesses grow, so does the demand on their critical IT hardware. In many cases this leads to companies adding to their hardware estate to cope with the demand of more users, more customers and ultimately more data, to process or store off the back of this growth.  With so many different vendors in the market, companies have a wider choice than ever to choose from to expand their estate, and the vendor they choose largely depends on their needs at that time.

There are many business reasons for adopting a multi-vendor set up, some of which could be performance, and others including suitability, availability, equipment use, and of course cost, are also pertinent.

Getting all the systems talking and working together is of course achievable. The problems and hassle generally start when something fails and needs to be fixed.

So, what happens when your IBM iSeries system develops a fault with a drive, alongside your HP Proliant reporting a cache error and your Dell PowerEdge pushing out a memory issue?

The reality for many companies is that you have to call X company for your Dell, Y company for your HP and Z company for your IBM maintenance.

This approach results in many unenviable tasks. Logging multiple incidents, making multiple phone calls, to multiple suppliers to resolve the issues that have arisen. This is not only time consuming for members of staff, but it can dramatically affect the productivity of the business, with time spent waiting for parts on various SLAs and perusing agreements you have with different maintenance suppliers. It could also mean you are paying way over the odds for your critical IT hardware maintenance.

Some savvy businesses are now aware of this, having largely learnt the hard way from experience, and have chosen to adopt a multi-vendor maintenance agreement to cover all their critical hardware.
