Pironet NDH pays scrapping incentive for obsolete IT systems
"In the last crisis after 2001 companies froze their investments in their IT systems and continued using them long beyond the depreciation period. The result was an investment backlog in small to medium-sized enterprises which has still not been rectified. With the scrapping incentive we want to encourage small to medium-sized enterprises to take advantage of the crisis to cut their ICT costs on a long-term basis and to make their software environment competitive", explains Udo Faulhaber, Marketing Director of the ICT Outsourcing division at Pironet NDH.
Flexibilisation of IT costs
Just as the scrapping incentive offered by the German Government first and foremost promotes the sale of fuel-efficient new cars which are significantly cheaper to run, Pironet NDH's initiative supports the intelligent use of resources, says Udo Faulhaber. "We help companies obtain information technology which is constantly geared to their actual requirements and thus keeps in line dynamically with corporate growth. In times of declining business development and decreasing use of IT, this also automatically means lower IT costs. Systems operated separately by a company don't offer this degree of flexibility. In addition, the latest technologies are always available to our customers, without any cost-intensive upgrade projects."
Incentive for better ecological balance
Customised use of resources also improves the ecological balance of a company's IT facilities, adds Udo Faulhaber. In contrast to individual companies, Pironet NDH constantly modernises the technical infrastructure of its data centre. This ensures that power-saving computers are used today whose energy consumption will decrease from generation to generation. As the operator of a computer centre for numerous customers, Pironet NDH can also utilise its systems more efficiently. Server farms in companies, on the other hand, must also reserve sufficient capacity for infrequent peak loads, and in between these peaks consume energy for superfluous computing power.
