1IT cost savings reflect potential overall reductions in software and/or hardware maintenance charges and reduced costs of system and workload management that may be achieved over a period of 3-5 years, when consolidating workloads from other systems to IBM. Software migration is from Oracle database and/or application server to comparable IBM DB2 and IBM WebSphere products. Actual cost savings and performance characteristics will vary depending on individual client configurations. Complimentary services, training and education will vary by customer and may not be available in every country. Financing terms and availability vary by country.
