Software offerings and configurations are growing in complexity, as companies are looking to purchase licenses as efficiently as possible, while maximizing the return to their organization. To add to this complexity, platforms are available on-premises, hybrid and in the cloud. Software-as-a-Service and Bridge-to-Cloud can help optimize IT environments, but licensing structures can be dramatically different compared to traditional offerings.
As a value-added IBM Solution Provider, authorized IBM software reseller, and accredited IBM training partner, Perficient delivers comprehensive software solutions with a reduced total cost of ownership. For organizations considering a move to the cloud, Perficient provides expertise in evaluating platforms and deciding which workloads to migrate. Our experience across all major cloud providers (like our own Life Sciences Cloud, AWS, Rackspace, Azure, Softlayer, etc) and our knowledge of licensing options can save you time and money, and help your IT team be more agile and responsive.
