Simplify your move from on-prem to cloud

We’ve made it easier to move to cloud. If you already license one of the eligible IBM on-premises offerings and that offering is covered by active Subscription and Support (S&S), you can leverage that investment and Bridge to Cloud.

This program offers single quote, order, and invoice; elimination of dual payments; and shifting of support entitlements from your on-premises offering to the comparable SaaS offering. This way, you can minimize the need for additional training or changes to your business process.

Move to cloud without the risk

With this program, try the SaaS offerings that are comparable to the on-prem ones you have today — without risk. And if you wish to move back to on-prem, you can do so during the term of your contract without incurring S&S reinstatement fees.

To learn more, contact us with your current configuration and the license you want to transition to SaaS. An IBM representative will follow up with you.
