IBM Global Financing Supports New Cloud Initiatives
Published September 27, 2012
Categories: Info Tech
IBM Global Financing will offer affordable financing options to help managed service providers acquire new technologies as part of IBM’s new set of global initiatives to better position clients to take advantage of cloud opportunities.
The effort is aimed at further expanding IBM’s cloud ecosystem, enabling organizations to develop solutions and services on IBM SmartCloud and PureSystems, built on open standards. As more clients embrace cloud computing, they are looking to local technology providers known as managed service providers (MSPs) to help them quickly develop cloud-based services in a more simplistic, secure and economical way.
Financing Options through IBM Global Financing will help MSPs to acquire new technology solutions and services with flexible, affordable payment plans for IBM systems, software and services — including 12-month, 0% loans for IBM systems, storage and software. A payment plan from IGF can provide MSPs with low monthly payment options while avoiding large, up-front cash payments, the ability to upgrade their systems mid-lease and improve IT asset management. MSPs that select PureSystems platforms may defer their first payment for 90 days.
