Funding your migration to IBM



IBM Global Financing can provide credit qualified clients access to the capital you need to quickly and affordably move to IBM. Working with IBM we can simplify the process and provide you a financing structure that helps you preserve cash, improve your financial return and mitigate risk.

Our complete, end to end financing and equipment disposal services can help clients to quickly and cost effectively migrate to an IBM platform.

How we can help

Access to capital
IT migration projects can take up to six months to complete, and require significant upfront cost with many dependencies. IBM Global Financing can provide you access to competitively priced, fixed rate financing that can help you preserve cash for revenue generating or higher yielding investments.

Mitigate risk
These days, any decision to utilize internal capital funding carries financial risk in terms of cost overruns, budget cuts, project scope changes, delays and other dependencies.

Working with IBM Global Financing, we can customize and provide financing structures to help meet these challenges which in turn helps you better manage project or financial risk.

Simplify management
We can finance all aspects of your migration project, including IBM and non-IBM hardware, software and services. What’s more we can consolidate the multiple vendor and overall project costs into a simple monthly payment, all from one vendor.

Improve financial return
In today’s economic environment, IT projects must demonstrate a strong business case.. Financing from IBM helps you better align project costs to expected benefits by smoothing out the upfront cost into affordable monthly payments, while our competitive rates help deliver improved present value savings. This in turn helps you generate faster project cash flow break-even and improved return on investment.

End to end offerings to meet your migration project requirements and beyond
We provide specific offerings that help you manage everything from funding the up-front migration project to the disposal of older equipment, both IBM and non-IBM. What’s more if your equipment has value, we can pay you cash that can help offset some of the migration costs as part of our Asset Buyback Services.

If you are conducting your migration in phases, you can also utilize our Sale Leaseback offering to turn owned equipment into cash that you can use to fund your initial migration to IBM.

We finance both IBM and non-IBM hardware, software and services. So if your project involves obtaining new software licenses, paying for IBM implementation services or other related services from a business partner we can meet your requirements.

For post-migration IT requirements, IBM IT Lifecycle Financing and IT Disposal Services can continue to help you lower IT acquisition costs, improve overall TCO, reduce technology obsolescence risk, and provide disposal for end of life IT equipment in accordance with environmental laws and regulations.

IBM Global Financing offerings are provided through IBM Credit LLC in the United States and other IBM subsidiaries and divisions worldwide to qualified commercial and government clients.
