4 Ways to Reduce
Maintenance and Support Costs



How can your business spend less on
maintenance and more on innovation?
NPI maintains profiles on 5,000+ IT vendors, and we analyze more than 14,000 transactions per year.  Our consultants have real-time knowledge about pricing trends, competitive market threats, market share capture incentives and other vendor business drivers.

In addition, we answer questions such as:

  • Bundling – right or wrong for this purchase?
  • Is third-party support a viable option?
  • What is the short and long-term financial impact of moving to the cloud?
  • How will recent changes in software licensing structures impact software cost reduction?
  • Does a fixed-fee engagement make sense?
  • Are actual user profiles aligned with types of licenses being purchased

We shape win/win transactions for our clients and their key technology suppliers ranging from Microsoft, Oracle and SAP to HP and IBM.

Deep Knowledge, Hands-on Involvement, Specific Advice

Most of our clients subscribe to technology market research services such as Gartner and Forrester. Some also work with the IT practice of management consulting firms like McKinsey and Deloitte.  These consultants are an excellent source of technology market-scape information for IT planning and vendor short-listing. But, they don’t fill the need for up-to-the-minute market pricing and contracting intelligence, and in-depth transaction structuring that capitalizes on every advantage and avoids every pitfall. This is where NPI’s IT costing expertise comes in. We provide actionable insight where the rubber meets the road – that place between vendor short-listing and a signed contract where, 65% of the time, we find overspending – and help our clients eliminate it.
