IBM solution:

In a traditional IT environment, there is a large cost associated with building and integrating new IT environments. With budgets under scrutiny, licensing, annual maintenance contract costs, plus hidden infrastructure, administration, management and support labor costs can make the total cost of ownership (TCO) prohibitive.
This high and unpredictable TCO can put an unneeded burdened on your organization’s IT budget.
