IBM i (AS400, iSeries, System i) Users
Hi, I’m Bob Losey, President of Source Data Products.
It simply amazes me how IBM POWER server resellers propose over-priced, over-sized servers with unneeded features because of lack of:
- Insufficient assessment,
- Incomplete knowledge of how the technology works,
- Imperfect knowledge of IBM pricing options, and
- Inadequate review of your options to get your best value.
We Avoid These Problems That Traditional Business Partners Create When Proposing New IBM i on POWER Servers, And We Can Save Clients Money In The Process.
Source Data Products experts will help you find the exact solution you require. Whether it’s an IBM i on POWER, an IBM iSeries server, or AS400 upgrade, we got you covered.
To your success!
P.S. My Iron-Clad, 100% “You-Can’t Lose” Guarantee: I am so confident our approach will provide you the right IBM i on POWER or IBM iSeries server at the best value that if you are not head-over-heels thrilled with your new server in the first 30 days, I insist we fix your server at our cost or we take it back. No hassles, No problems.
Here’s What Our Clients Say:
“You have been the best IBM Partner that we have had! Never have we had an IBM partner that we have felt truly cared about making the best decision for us and not about selling more product or services.”
“You are one of the most honest leaders in the business because you care about your customers. Thank you for your service.”
"I worked with Mark Walsh to get the LTO-3 tape drive installed and tested last Friday evening. He did his usual outstanding job and everything is working fine.”
“I have come to rely on you and your staff and you never disappoint.”
"We Paid $99,200 Less Than I Thought We Would Have To Pay For Our New IBM Power7 i."
"I knew Source Data’s prices were always better than the ‘big kids’, so I invited them to participate in our upgrade planning."
"I paid $50,000 less than I expected and got a smooth migration to my new IBM Power i from a reliable, expert OS400 project leader."
"With Source Data you are going to get the right machine at the right price from the right people to get your project done."
"We Saved Over $46,000 On Our New IBM Power i, Got The Easiest Migration In My IT Career, And Our Peak-Load Web Response Time Dropped From 5 Seconds To Instantaneous."
"SDP makes a point of understanding what our business needs are. I believe this is the first time I was handed a questionnaire in order to determine what I was looking for. I think that shows the extra mile that Source Data goes to determine what our needs are and not sell us a pre-configured server that makes the seller the most profit.”
"My company requires we get 3 bids – and Source Data Products, Inc .had the best price. As a JD Edwards user, the biggest difference was the price for setup and migration. I got one bid for the JD Edwards migration that was nearly 5 times the price quoted by Source Data – a savings of $40,000."
“We saved $44,950 on System i POWER 6 8203-E4A and $10,389 on System i POWER 6 CBU. Source Data proposal for these two 8203-E4A 2-core servers provided the most expandability and the least expensive approach compared to the two other AS400 resellers’ proposals we considered. The CFO is very happy with the nearly seamless transition! In addition, I especially appreciate how Source Data untangled some of the IBM bureaucratic issues, like our software licensing and support billing. With Source Data, it is so much easier than trying to work directly with IBM.”
“Source Data gave me the best value Power i – I avoided $42,100 extra printer costs and reduced our IBM support costs $7,763 per year.”
“Eliminating Unneeded Software Helped Me Justify SSDs. My Performance Improved 200% - 300%.”
“My gosh, Source Data saved me over $21,891 per year in IBM support and maintenance! We went to the new IBM Power i – all the hardware, software, and support is built into the lease – the payback was in less than 28 months.”
“We saved $159,000 on our System i Power5 (AS400), $76,000 on High Availability Software, $35,000 by retaining legacy peripherals, and migrated from 9406-800 with V5R3 to 9406-520 with V5R4 with NO downtime.“
Source Data Products Got Us The Right Balance Of Price/Performance That Also Saved Us $30,000
“When we were evaluating our Power 6 i 8203-E4A options, SDP helped me understand the right balance between performance and lowest cost. Source Data helped me right-size our IBM server so we would get our best value.”
“SDP saved us $30,000 by not over-selling us on concurrent users. We got enough concurrent users to support our user base without over paying for seats we would not use.”
