General Price Action on System z

If you were wondering why I haven't been posting for almost two weeks, well, I was at home. No, not having a nice holiday nor gardening. Last Monday I could hardly sit straight because of the pain in my back, so I've been recovering mostly lying in bed, walking around a bit and doing pretty much nothing. But I'm back (pun not intended) now.

And here we are already with the annual price action for System z. Last year there seemed to be a larger raise for products that were End of Support, but this time the announcement does not mention any particular softwares. For most European countries - including Belgium - "the maximum reduction will be 3% or the maximum increase for the impacted MLC prices will be 5%". If we have the same trend as the last couple of years, and I'm only talking about Belgium here, the impact might very well be rather small. Last year, most customers hardly had a raise and some even had some reduction on their bill.

The price changes will be effective July 1, 2010.
