Q1 2020 Hardware Alerts

XSi Q1 2020 EoSW or EoS ALERT: Popular OEM Models to Address

If you’re not yet monitoring essential Hardware Lifecycle Milestone dates, this ALERT provides a quick-glance review of popular OEM models that have reached (or about to reach) End of Software Support (EoSW) or End of Support (EoS). For these hardware asset models, it no longer makes financial sense to rely on expensive OEM support – but instead, should move to independent (IT Maintenance) support.

The EoSW and EoS dates help you easily identify when there are no remaining logical reasons to keep these assets within an OEM maintenance agreement. There is simply no way to justify the added expense. We will share this kind of alert quarterly via our blogs, so be sure to follow XSi at LinkedIn.
