To keep its product development on track and stay ahead of the market, SOFTWARE ENGINEERING GmbH needs to ensure that it can offer add-on solutions for the latest IBM® Db2® for z/OS® software. But how could the company develop and test new solutions on IBM Z® without limitations while maintaining tight control over operational costs?

— Karl Henn, Senior Systems Programmer, SOFTWARE ENGINEERING GmbH

Benefits of IBM Certified Pre-Owned

Control budget and cost

Optimizing past investments by expanding or upgrading your existing infrastructure can contribute to a lower TCO. Payment plans with low upfront payments can help stretch budgets and free up cash for other initiatives.

Quickly respond to business demands

For a technology refresh, data center expansion, legacy software preservation, backup system solutions or just adding a part or more capacity — we work with you to match your product, budget and timing requirements.

Built for trust and reliability

Remanufactured with genuine parts using an authentic IBM BOM and eligible for IBM maintenance, IBM Certified Pre-Owned offers quality and reliability to meet your business needs.

IBM Certified Pre-Owned parts help extend maintenance

An IT Service Provider needed to maintain its current IBM storage infrastructure cloud for a specified time for business reasons, but the maintenance term had ended, and new parts were no longer available.


  • IBM Certified Pre-Owned parts for existing IBM storage systems
  • IBM Maintenance Extension Service 

By acquiring the certified pre-owned parts, the company was able to extend the maintenance agreement as needed. Since all parts were already IBM-inspected for quality, there was no further requirement to make the system eligible for IBM Maintenance.
