IBM Accelerated Value Program Enterprise Support for Apache OpenOffice
Today’s business leaders are questioning their past investment prioritization in desktop office software and embracing lower cost alternatives. IBM® Software Services for Collaboration provides advisory services in helping customers take the steps to deploy new solutions and significantly reduce costs. Enterprise support for Apache OpenOffice delivered by The IBM Software Group's Accelerated Value Program (AVP), pairs you with an IBM trusted advisor who provides invaluable guidance and expertise for supporting the deployment of Apache OpenOffice in your environment.
Leveraging your existing platforms
Integrating your business document solution with existing social business environments can significantly increase the reach and distribution of shared knowledge within your organization. Sharing and distributing valuable content in a wide variety of file types has never been easier with extensions and plug-ins for Apache OpenOffice. Apache OpenOffice is platform independent to leverage your existing platforms.
Saving you time and money
Reducing traditional desktop office software licensing requirements and management costs allows you to focus on helping your users, by unlocking and sharing their knowledge, improving their collaboration and increasing their productivity. The cost of engaging IBM AVP Enterprise support to help with the transition to Apache OpenOffice is priced at $6 per user per year (based on a 50,000 user licence). Subscription rates for other commercially available office productivity suites are typically in the range of $20 * per user per year plus support costs, suggesting there is a highly compelling cost case to consider the move to Apache OpenOffice software and IBM's Enterprise support offering.
Helping to accelerate your success
Your trusted advisor, an IBM Software Accelerated Value Leader, serves as your single point of contact, evaluating your requirements and business goals as they evolve. They provide expertise, management and support for an Apache OpenOffice environment, allowing you to focus more on your users and their success.
Effective user enablement and successful adoption requires much more than just releasing the software to end users. Your trusted advisor develops a proven strategy that includes enablement, planning, reviews, audits and pro-active management to help ensure a rapid return on your investment. Your trusted advisor anticipates your needs and stays closely engaged both on and off site as you develop and adopt new capabilities in Apache OpenOffice.
IBM has the leading technology and deep experience needed to help organizations of all sizes to work smarter, become more agile and foster innovation. IBM Software Services for Collaboration possesses the deep industry and technical knowledge required to help you save time and money, while reducing implementation risks as your enterprise social business grows.
