Why enterprise systems?
IT departments in every organisation continue to be challenged on too many fronts:
With IT budgets remaining flat, businesses look for ways to do more with less and drive efficiency.
Researchers expect data volumes to increase on a massive scale by 2020, reaching more than 40 times today’s volumes with unstructured data becoming the norm. Better management and analysis is required.
Security and privacy breaches:
With an average of 60,000 attacks on corporate systems per day and costs averaging $5.5M each, the need for security and compliance has never been greater.
In this environment, transforming the management of critical information and processes is vital to generating new business value, delivering new client services and capturing new markets. To deliver this transformation, forward-thinking businesses rely on enterprise systems —the servers, storage and software at the centre of their enterprise IT infrastructure. Because this data and these core processes and services are sensitive and indispensable, they can only be trusted to systems that deliver the highest levels of service, scale to meet virtually any demand the business might place on them, deliver real-time insight from data, provide superior security, and offer extraordinary efficiency and availability.
The enterprise systems that clients choose when it matters most are IBM Enterprise Power Systems, IBM zEnterprise System, IBM Storage for Power (US) and IBM Storage for System z (US). Ready for today's toughest challenges, enterprise systems are:
Enabling private cloud infrastructure at enterprise scale, with flexible service delivery models that provide dynamic efficiency for resource and workload management
Ensuring that critical data is always available across the enterprise, making it accessible in new ways so that actionable insights can be derived from structured and unstructured data in real time
Delivering the ultimate in security, ensuring the integrity of critical data while mitigating business risk and providing industry and regulatory compliance
