Nearly every enterprise has equipment that’s outdated but still useful. Google serves as a prime example. Since 2007, the company states it has avoided purchasing more than 90,000 new replacement servers by remanufacturing and repurposing its outdated ones, using those for services that don’t require high-end processing power. The result is a more efficient and environmentally friendly operation. Another possibility for some companies to deal with outdated but still useful equipment is working with a vendor that can repurpose or recycle it, a solution that can see the enterprise recouping some of its expenses.
First Things First
If you’re looking to get rid of or repurpose old equipment, you first need a better understanding of what equipment you have and how it’s being used.
