IBM Sets the Stage for the Next Era of ComputingMay 16, 2012 No Comments
ARMONK, N.Y. - 11 Apr 2012: IBM (NYSE:IBM) today announced a major step forward in a new, simpler era of computing with the introduction of a new category of “expert integrated systems.” This new family is the first with built-in expertise based on IBM’s decades of experience running IT operations for tens of thousands of clients in 170 countries.
IBM’s expert integrated systems family – PureSystems – is the result of $2 billion in R&D and acquisitions over four years, an unprecedented move by IBM to integrate all IT elements, both physical and virtual. The new systems family offers clients an alternative to today’s enterprise computing model, where multiple and disparate systems require significant resources to set up and maintain.
The prime challenge facing companies worldwide is the need to spend 70 percent or more of IT budgets on simple operations and maintenance, leaving little to invest in innovation. Two-thirds of corporate IT projects are delivered over budget and behind schedule, according to a recent study by IBM which also found that only one in five corporate IT departments are able to spend the majority of their IT budget on innovation.
