The Open Infrastructure Offering (OIO) allows you to establish a relationship with IBM that can improve your price performance, provide interest rate protection for the life of your investments and enhance the reliability, scalability and flexibility of your IT environments.
Flexible financing can be included in your OIO to help dramatically reduce the complexity involved in paying for your IT investments. With an OIO, you get a single, budgeted invoice each month that covers all products and services included in the original IBM agreement.
Use an OIO to streamline your entire IT infrastructure lifecycle—including planning, procurement, budgeting, payment and asset disposition.
IBM can assemble an OIO that combines hardware, software, services, maintenance and disaster recovery into a single, customised agreement.
Offer valid until withdrawn
OIO is a forecasted capacity on demand, or "pay-for-forecast," plan. It requires clients to make a long-term commitment (three to five years) for a fixed base capacity, but it also gives them flexibility to provide for temporary capacity that is turned on or off during the commitment period. Temporary capacity is available on IBM platforms, and eligible IBM software products can be also included. Customised usage plans are available.
Other restrictions may apply. Contact your IBM Global Financing representative for additional information and specific details.
