address mobile, social and big data demands. But you have to implement a cloud infrastructure efficiently. You cannot add complexity or operational cost. IT is already extremely expensive to run—68 percent of IT operating costs in 2013 will be for management and administration.
You need simplified management and application platforms and infrastructure that meet your needs both in functionality and in ongoing cost.Simply put: you need to improve IT efficiency by simplifying the IT lifecycle. You need to reduce complexity and drive greater efficiency to ultimately speed the pace of innovation.
Expert integrated systems are designed to meet these demands
IBM introduced the first expert integrated systems—IBM® PureSystems™—in 2012 to meet these demands and fundamentally change the economics and experience of IT. Over 10,000 clients rely on IBM technology to optimize their social, mobile, and big data workloads on cloud infrastructure. PureSystems solutions build on this cloud experience, integrating it into the system to improve efficiency and simplify deployment.
Built-in expertise: capturing and automating what experts do.
IBM expert integrated systems represent the collective knowledge gained in thousands of deployments, established methods of work, innovative thinking, IT industry leadership, and the distilled expertise of IBM and solution providers. All of this is built into the system in a deployable form from the base system infrastructure through the application.
Integration by design: integrating and tuning hardware and software.
All the hardware and software components are deeply integrated, tuned in the lab and packaged in the factory into a single ready-to-go system that is optimized for the workloads you need to run. All of the integration is done for you, by experts.
Simplified experience: making every part of the IT lifecycle easier.
With expert integrated systems, the entire experience is much simpler, from solution design to purchase, system setup to operation, maintenance to upgrades. Management of the entire system of physical and virtual resources is integrated and all this is done in an open manner to enable participation by a broad ecosystem of partners to bring their industry-optimized solutions to bear. With these capabilities, PureSystems can help you transform your business in three key ways:
Accelerate new applications, big data and analytics.
With PureSystems, deploying a new web application does not have to take days. In fact, as proven in IBM testing, it can be done in as little as 15 minutes.
As a result, customers have seen application deployment time reduced by up to 75 percent.
Simplify cloud application platforms and infrastructure.
PureSystems can help you get your cloud infrastructure running quickly—in as little as four hours in IBM testing.
PureSystems customers can deploy services in minutes or hours rather than days or weeks and have seen near 100 percent availability.
Improve IT efficiency by simplifying IT infrastructure.
PureSystems integrate the management of all physical and virtual resources—compute, storage and networking—in a single tool to help improve management efficiency. IBM testing showed a 75 percent reduction in management time across the IT lifecycle with PureSystems.
And customers have seen up to a 28 percent decrease in data center footprint and a 60 percent reduction in annual operation expenses.
