Value Proposition for IBM PureFlex System Case for IBM PureFlex System for Cloud-Enabled SAP Enterprise Environments

SAP users face many challenges. They must respond more rapidly and flexibly to changes in volatile,
globalized business environments. They must boost competitiveness and exploit emerging opportunities.
At the same time, economic conditions reinforce pressures to cut or at least contain growth in costs.

challenges. Clouds offer the potential to reduce IT cycle times, more effectively exploit virtualization
technologies and increase operational efficiencies. But adoption rates among SAP users have been
conservative.
