Cloud Adoption and Managed Service Providers Fuel Global Momentum for IBM PureSystems

IBM ships more than 10,000 systems through 4Q 2013

ARMONK, N.Y. - 31 Jan 2014: As organizations look to consolidate their existing data centers and shift more of their workloads to the cloud, IBM (NYSE: IBM)  announced that this trend has helped fuel the growing momentum for the IBM PureSystems family of expert integrated systems, which have now shipped more than 10,000 units through the 4th Quarter of 2013.

Another aspect of this trend is that as more organizations embrace cloud computing, they are looking to Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to help them quickly develop and deploy cloud based services in a more secure and economical way. These MSPs – many in key regions such as India, Brazil and China - are increasingly turning to IBM PureSystems over other vendors’ offerings in order to transform their data centers and provide the IT infrastructure that meets the needs of their clients.   

Global Clients Embrace PureSystems 

ABC Capital, one of the largest financial companies in Mexico, faced a difficult server consolidation project. After considering other vendors including HP, Dell and Oracle, ABC Capital chose to consolidate its entire IT infrastructure onto IBM PureFlex. 

"In order to become more competitive in the market, ABC Capital was looking to build an infrastructure that could support the mobile technology and social network requirements of our customers," said Sergio Mendoza Alvarez, Director of Technology for ABC Capital. "The integration of our platforms using IBM PureFlex will allow us to meet these goals and reduce the migration time for our multi-core systems, from two years to seven months.” 

The flexibility and ease of deployment that PureSystems delivers has been one of the key reasons for the rapid adoption by organizations like ABC Capital in a wide variety of global regions.  For example: 

·   FleetRisk Advisors, a business unit of Omnitracs Inc., provides advanced analytics solutions for fleet management and logistics. With a solution that includes IBM PureData System for Analytics, FleetRisk Advisors built a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that enabled it to help reduce fleet-related accidents by 20 percent and support a 200 percent growth in the number of clients it serves.
