Some enterprises consider the flexibility and customized support from TPMs as an advantage. Customers will often switch to TPMs when the original warranty runs out, rather than renew the OEM support contract."
Dover, NH (PRWEB) March 28, 2016
Ardent Support Technologies, a Third Party Maintenance provider for Storage, Server, and Networking support contracts, has announced the company’s inclusion in a March 17, 2016 Gartner report titled “Competitive Landscape: Leveraging Third-Party Maintenance Providers for Data Center and Network Maintenance Cost Optimization, North America”.
The report provides a comprehensive list of key findings among the top companies in the Third Party Maintenance market, lists recommendations for companies considering TPM services, and evaluates 13 companies whose services were competitively vetted and categorized by Gartner research Analyst Christine Tenneson. Among those categories were Market “Disrupters”, of which Ardent Support Technologies was identified.
“Enterprise's need to reduce capital expenditure (capex) spend in networking and data centers is a supporting factor to consider TPMs.” Tenneson explains. “Some enterprises consider the flexibility and customized support from TPMs as an advantage. Customers will often switch to TPMs when the original warranty runs out, rather than renew the OEM support contract, due to significant increases in OEM postwarranty pricing.”
“The recent report from Gartner is an accurate look into the current state of the Third Party Maintenance market.” Said Jim Stevens, Co-Founder of Ardent. “For the last 10 years, Ardent has positioned itself as a high-touch, support focused company. We work continuously to improve our efficiency and drive down operational costs without sacrificing the level of support our customers have come to expect.”
