About this talk

IT deployment has evolved rapidly over the years, driven by its growing influence as it shifts from being a competitive differentiator to a core strategic asset. In a world where digital transformation and digital disruptors are redefining the status quo across large swaths of industry verticals, IT upgrades are now closely watched by the C-Suite. Despite this, many organizations continue to cling to a rigid 3~5 year refresh cycle across their estate, primarily driven by an OEM’s EoL timetable. In this 45-minute webinar, Curvature subject matter experts will discuss: •Common myths associated with aging HW and access to SW updates •When is third party maintenance a good fit? (hint: much earlier than EoL) •How to apply a “Fit for Purpose” life cycle to challenge the OEM’s EoL Life cycle As the global leader in independent IT support, products and services, Curvature is transforming how companies manage, maintain and upgrade equipment and support for multi-vendor, multinational networks and data centers.

Curvature is a provider of IT Infrastructure & Operations (I&O) products and services that transacts primarily outside of the traditional sales channels that most IT providers operate in. This means that we can deliver real value, real consultative insight and positive service outcomes for your I&O business independent of the OEMs who effectively control the I&O products and services marketplace. Why do you need this? The traditional OEM channel world is primarily driven by the concept that new technology infrastructure features always deliver so much value to you that frequent and aggressive technology refreshes will always deliver value to your I&O estate. Most I&O leaders know that this concept isn’t necessarily true or particularly relevant for them. Most of the applications and services that run on the existing infrastructure don’t need constantly improving hardware underneath them. Most I&O leaders though, feel that they don’t have options in the marketplace and are therefore resigned to just constantly fight off the OEM sales efforts to replace not-so-old infrastructure. At Curvature, we have an array of options and alternatives to the traditional OEM channels that will give you back control of your infrastructure and allow you to make the I&O decisions that make the most sense for your business constituency, rather than the OEM’s stock price.
