The sponsor named below commissioned Ardent Partners to write this report.

First, there’s the printing, scanning, faxing, and mailing of documents. Then comes the constant tracking down of physical signatures for everything from statements of work to supplier contracts. Add in the manual filing, searching, and retrieving of hard copies, and it’s no wonder that inefficiency abounds.

IBM’s new PowerLinux servers appeal to Linux buyers?

Linux buyers, therefore, look first and foremost at the total cost of acquisition of Linux based servers. Linux buyers also want rapid time to value (fast deployment); they often use decentralized procurement processes; they want their Linux servers to be simple to use and manage."
