1. Maintenance provides substantial savings on renewals

While licenses are typically renewable at 50% of the new license value, a maintenance subscription provides the benefit of renewal at only 20% of the new license value. This provides a savings of 60% on the upgrade cost.

The timeline below illustrates the compounding savings of maintenance over a 5-year period for a new license valued at $1,000:

As you can see, by the end of 5 years with maintenance, you'll have saved 33% on your upgrade costs! Even better: the savings continue to increase as long as you stay current and stay enrolled.


2. Maintenance ensures compatibility with the latest evolving technologies and OS changes

It's no secret — the world of computing is extremely fluid and dynamic. New technologies, challenges, and security threats emerge on a daily basis. So how do you ensure that the tools your organization relies upon are equipped to mitigate and leverage these changes? By keeping those tools up to date.

For example, many corporations are beginning their migrations to Windows 8. As with any major OS upgrade, there are challenges associated with porting over essential applications so that your employees can continue working uninterrupted with the tools they need. For those customers who are covered by a maintenance subscription, their enrollment ensures that their IDM software is current and fully compatible with this and any future new version of Windows.

Keeping your maintenance current ensures that your software is working for you rather than against you. Instead of struggling to maintain compatibility in the wake of an evolving technological landscape, up-to-date software provides you with the confidence and peace-of-mind that you're protected against new threats and compatible with the latest changes to existing technologies, operating systems, and best practices.
