New technologies for cloud, big data, analytics, mobile devices and social media are redefining the way that businesses will be operating on and IT must be transformed to support these technologies. The shift can offer the opportunity to assess and improve the business model and interaction with the customers, partners and employees. To capitalise on this opportunity, organisations must be able to tap into their data and energise applications without going over budget and all the while keeping everything protected and secure.

The IBM® zEnterprise System delivers exceptional value and industry-centric capabilities allowing you to maximise the business value of your unique information. Make informed and optimised decisions, exploit cloud delivery models to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs and complexity with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and use the built in System z security at every level to improve customer trust and confidence and know your IT infrastructure is secure. The IBM zEC12 and the IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension (zBX) Model 003 offer a proven hybrid computing design that supports mainframe and the distributed technologies of IBM POWER7 and IBM System x blades. IBM zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager (zManager) can manage and integrate workloads on the multiple architectures with the simplicity of a single system.
