Unlock additional value from your existing IT

If you’re like most businesses, you use 70% of your current IT resources to manage legacy infrastructure, and the other 30% to implement new technology.1 IT asset lifecycle solutions from HPE Financial Services help you extract additional value from your existing IT investments or move to new technology more effectively. We’ll develop a custom plan to help you optimize and repurpose your existing IT investments — or convert them into capital that funds your transition to new innovations.


Optimize your existing IT investments

Extract the full value from your existing IT assets when you redeploy them in another area of your business. Our vast, multi-vendor asset pool can supply end-of-service-life hardware components that keep your legacy-locked hardware or proprietary systems running longer, or even expand them.

Transition to new technologies

Unlock the IT currency in your existing investments to fund business-critical technology refreshes. Our remarketing operations for your unneeded equipment, coupled with savings through short-term and proof-of-concept hardware rental vs. purchase, help extract value to accelerate innovation.

Adapt for changing business needs

Build a flexible plan that spans both the globe and the IT equipment lifecycle with a one-stop shop for asset lifecycle services — tailored to your specific use case. Our platform of global capabilities delivers consistent, secure services around the world to help you reuse, recycle, or destroy decommissioned IT assets. 

Begin your IT circular economy journey

All good journeys are built on a sturdy plan, solid execution, and strong measurement. Your IT circular economy journey should be no different. Challenge your IT and Sustainability organizations with these goals to get on the right path towards environmental sustainability:

  • Ensure at least 75% of your retired assets go back “into the circle”
  • Measure your contribution to CE and hold yourself accountable
