It’s an exciting time for us and this research further recognizes that third party providers are a legitimate alternative to the OEMs.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) April 17, 2016
SSCS Global IT Services (SSCS) is pleased to be recognized by Gartner in their March 2016 report entitled “Competitive Landscape: Leveraging Third-Party Maintenance Providers for Data Center and Network Maintenance Cost Optimization, North America” (ID: G00294372). In the report, it is noted that “The focus of this document is on the third party maintenance (TPM) market for data center and network support, which is maintenance provided independently from the OEMs.”
Research Director Christine Tenneson of Gartner’s Managed Business and Technology services team stated in the article, “End-user interest and demand for alternatives to OEM support for data center and network maintenance is increasing, fueled by a need for cost optimization, particularly for post-warranty and EOSL data center and network devices.”
“We are pleased that Gartner has taken the time to get to know our industry after all these years,” said Howie Olund, Vice President and co-founder. “We have worked very hard to build a high quality service delivery organization that reduces business risk of system outage for our clients. I’m excited for all that the future holds”.
Mark Havens, VP of Sales and Marketing at SSCS added, “You’ll notice that most of our larger competitors have grown through acquisition and many are driven by private equity companies. But SSCS is one of the few that has grown organically, is run by its original founders, and is completely debt free. We are also one of the few providers with a true global reach. It’s an exciting time for us and this research further recognizes that third party providers are a legitimate alternative to the OEMs.“
