Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for IBM POWER8 8284-22A (S822)

Even though a manufacturer might stop supporting a product, that doesn’t mean the product is useless. The product still has a lot of its original value. If it works for your company, it is a good idea to keep using it. As long as there aren’t any problems with the hardware or how it fits into your company’s infrastructure, you can keep using the product for a while by using TPM.
If you don’t want to rush into a decision about getting new hardware, you can continue to use your existing equipment with the help of TPM. This will let you upgrade when you’re ready, which will give you time to prepare for the transition and get your finances in order.
If you are fixing your computer hardware yourself, you may not be able to get OEM parts. This means that you might have to work with less-than-reliable manufacturers. However, if you want to use TPM, then you will have access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who will be repairing your equipment are experts in this field and may be more familiar with it than in-house technicians.
You can save money on post-EoL OEM services by working with a TPM company. They offer a similar skill set for much lower prices. Plus, with TPM, you may get more work done or a more personalized service than you would from your OEM. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by working with TPM. Although an upgrade will be necessary at some point, TPM can help postpone it.
While an OEM provides specialized equipment, a TPM program can focus on the needs of your company. For example, they might be able to repair your equipment in a way that creates as little downtime as possible. They might also offer more comprehensive services that can provide a better deal. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can even create a hybrid model with elements of OEM and TPM support if that’s what fits your business.
