Many CIOs and IT leaders try to extend the lifespan of older servers to reduce costs, but IDC believes that this is expensive and risky in the long run as older servers are less reliable, more costly to maintain, and can have indirect effects such as lower employee productivity.

Server infrastructure generates tangible return to your business, but it can depreciate quickly as each new generation of servers performs much better. To choose the optimal time for replacement, you need to be able to measure the total value of a server by calculating direct and indirect costs. 

This IDC opinion piece helps IT leaders fully comprehend the costs of delaying server replacements through interviews and surveys with IT decision makers and practitioners. Download it now to get essential guidance on upgrading.
