IBM launches new migration program for Oracle clients

The Switch can save clients up to 50% on applicable IT costs, claims Big Blue  

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM has launched a new migration program to make it easier to transition to IBM workload optimised systems.

The company hopes that the move will help more Oracle software and hardware clients break free from restrictive licensing and rising technology costs. It said Oracle clients that make the switch can save up to 50% on applicable IT costs over three to five years.

IBM said clients using Oracle database and application server software running on Sun, HP Itanium, or previous generation POWER servers, can take advantage of a complimentary savings assessment, detailed migration plan, skills training, and special financing when moving to IBM DB2 and WebSphere software on the latest IBM Systems and Storage.

The compnay said that the new program includes: complimentary savings assessment; a detailed migration plan created by IBM technologists; competitive pricing that includes migration services, training, and applicable IBM Systems and maintenance, IBM Software licenses, and subscription and support.

IBM said that to help clients further reduce IT costs and migrate to an IBM platform, credit-qualified clients can take advantage of zero percent financing on IBM hardware and software from IBM Global Financing, the lending and leasing arm of IBM.
Clients may also choose to finance their IT acquisition and defer payments for up to six months, added IBM.

IBM Global Financing also can assist in the removal and disposal of OEM hardware, including Sun or HP hardware, in compliance with environmental laws and regulations.
