IBM SmartCloud. Optimize your workloads, your budget and your company.
For midsize businesses looking to control IT costs, often the best solution is to run all or part of their infrastructure in the cloud-the IBM SmartCloud. It means you don't have to manage server room assets. It gives the flexibility to allocate computing resources based on business need, and easily scales up as your business grows. It can eliminate upfront investments. And it allows you to mix and match services across your entire value chain. Consider the benefits:
Increase Productivity. IT without boundaries can radically improve service delivery and connectivity throughout the organization.
Effectively Utilize Resources. Choose who can use which resources and workloads. Complete transparency to identify problems before they occur.
Reduce IT Costs. Cut licensing, capital expenditures, licensing fees and maintenance by up to 50%.¹
Once a midsize business comes to appreciate all the benefits of the cloud, the big question then becomes: Who can they count on for security rich, reliable IT services on the web? For many businesses the answer has been relatively easy. IBM and its Business Partners have decades of experience managing and optimizing the most sophisticated IT environments in the world. Case closed.
