The video below provides an overview of the session.

Robert LeBlanc, Senior Vice President, Middleware Software, IBM Software Group, will give an overview of IBM PureSystems via video, sharing how these deeply integrated and tuned systems capture into patterns the expertise from thousands of data center optimizations, making IT deployment and management faster and easier. Because these systems are built for cloud and tuned to specific workloads, you can balance performance and scalabilty for your critical computing and data needs.

If you envision a future where you can efficiently create and manage an infrastructure and reduce the cost and complexity of deploying and managing applications, then you will want to hear Jeff Howard, Vice President, Marketing, IBM PureFlex System, and Jason Gartner, Vice President, PureSystems Product Management. They will discuss the possibilities for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) with the IBM PureFlex and IBM PureApplication products. Their presentation will include use cases for each system, including how Managed Service Providers (MSPs) are successfully developing solutions and services on these open standards-based products.

Sharing his experience as a PureSystems early adopter, Rob Thomas, Senior Vice President of Global R&D for Manhattan Associates, will describe how he uses IBM PureSystems to make supply chain software available via patterns.

Stefan Ried from Forrester will share his perspective on integrated systems and client priorities. He will explain how CIO needs and drivers for cloud-based applications and big data can be met by integrated systems with reduced risk and cost.
