System i delivery times are wanting

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio

As Lukas Beeler waits for some wanted software to be delivered, he decided to write about IBM’s poor delivery times, both on the software and hardware side:

When it comes to delivery times, my experience with IBM has always been abysmal. The local swiss distributors (Avnet, TechData, Also) are usually low on stock, don’t have any System i stock (automatically giving you 2-8 weeks, depending on IBM’s mood). Software orders also take ages, especially additional software on new Systems (we usually buy 5722-IP1 for our customers to generate PDF). These software orders usually take 2+ weeks after the system was shipped.

Does anyone else out there run into this problem with IBM? Let me know about it in the comments section.
