Shift to consumption-based models.


The perception is that IBM Z requires high upfront costs with a lack of flexible pricing options. The reality is there are many options available to customers today to smooth out costs and best leverage consumption-based pricing. These options can range from embracing new flexible on-prem pricing models, referred to as Tailored Fit Pricing, to shifting completely to a mainframe-as-a-service colocation model.

Fit architecture to business outcomes and removes the ‘peak-based’ approach, unlocking capacity responsiveness to the business. On-prem consumption-based pricing enables like-for-like with cloud consumption models with comparable transparency and granularity.
