IBM extends Power System SW maintenance coverage on IBM i!

IBM i SW-Maintenance now available for 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 years!

The IBM i (5770-SS1) SW maintenance can now also be covered for the runtime for 2, 4 and 5 years via the IBM eConfigurator. The same applies for PowerVM 5765-VE3/5733-WQx/5733-RDW Software Maintenance! A list of all Software Maintenance can be found below in Announcement Letter ZP22-0037.

This makes it possible to provide offers for the customer even faster and more flexible. IBM has also announced the Care Packs (hardware maintenance) for the Power10 servers for the second and fourth year – see Announcement ZG22-0003 below.

This makes it possible to offer the end customer a Power machine including maintenance for four or five years in a relatively short time. This process had to be covered by a crossbrand offer before this change. A crossbrand usually takes one to two business days longer than a comparable offer where everything had to be covered via eConfig.
