As many of you are aware the IBM’s Hardware manufacturing costs are all based in US Dollars. Due to the recent currency changes, IBM has announced a planned price rise on October 1st.
I thought it would be a good chance for all of you with infrastructure plans in mind to be warned enough in advance so you have plenty of time to plan ahead of the planned price rise.
The price changes are effective from the 1st October 2016 and the price increase is planned to be announced for IBM Power and IBM Storage Systems. The IBM Power Systems Hardware list price will increase by 10%. IBM Storage Systems Hardware and Software list prices will increase by 5%, including MES upgrades, Software licenses and Software maintenance (registration, renewal, after licenses).
