An InformationWeek Vendor Perspectives Webcast:
An Executive Primer on Cutting Costs with Third-Party Software Support

Duration: 45 Minutes

IT, Finance, and Procurement Executives are exploring all their support options as enterprise software maintenance fees rise to 22% or more of license costs and take an increasing bite out of tight IT budgets. Hundreds of organizations have already cut their annual support costs more than 50% by replacing their vendor annual support with a third-party alternative.

Along with their commitment to lowering the costs of maintenance and infrastructure, IT leaders are also looking to make significant contributions to their companies' innovation, agility, and ability to grow. Under current IT operating models, however, those growth-oriented ideas can't be turned into reality until those IT leaders break with the traditional models that served them well in slower-moving times but are no longer effective in today's high-velocity, high-volume global economy. So these forward-looking business leaders have begun to tap into new approaches and new IT partners to break the chain of old models that no longer match up with today's business-technology challenges.

In this free, 45-minute webcast, a panel of experts will discuss the current state of enterprise software support and examine the new third-party support model in detail, including:

  • Definition of third-party support and how it works
  • Comparison of third-party support with traditional software vendor support
  • How to separate and optimize strategic vs. commodity applications
  • The business case for third-party support vs. vendor support
  • How to assess whether third-party support is a fit with your IT strategy

After this informative webcast, you will have the data you need to respond to questions from your Board and/or CEO whether the 50%+ cost savings of third-party support is an option for your organization’s IT strategy and budget planning. Register for the Webcast and learn your options!
