The Challenge

Organisations are finding it increasingly difficult to provide reliable hardware support and repair in the event of failures. The rate at which hardware components change make it nearly impossible to keep a reliable set of spares, and high levels of access to engineering staff to perform these repairs. Whilst much of IT is now moving into Cloud services, there is still a very high level of on-premises infrastructure, particularly for tier 1 production systems, that need a reliable support Break-Fix Solutions service.

Businesses need an effective way to manage and support their legacy IT systems, and with that, manage, consolidate and rationalise multiple suppliers. With shrinking IT budgets, more stringent SLAs and the need to meet compliance and regulations, the challenge is on.
