IBM Supports Other Computers
IBM is initiating a new program for helping us maintain computers. The Global Services division has begun a program in which IBM acquires hardware from any vendor you choose. Then you can choose from a menu of services. IBM could deliver the hardware, provide image management, maintain customized software, deploy and update applications, provide data backup and recovery, migrate data from old to new systems, provide security services, provide help desk service, as well as computer disposal. According to the CNET article I read, this could cost from $3-$4 per seat per month up to $50 per seat per month. I think I found information on the IBM web site about this, but the article didn't give a direct link, so I'm not positive this is it -- but it looks promising.
