How a new family of integrated systems became essential in less than 2 years

In less than two years from the time IBM launched the PureSystems Family, IBM has shipped more than 10,750 PureSystems.  IBM PureSystems has been gathering momentum all throughout 2013 and into 2014.  According to IDC’s Q3 2013 Integrated Systems market report, IBM PureSystems grew 2.6 times faster than the market with 180% YTY growth.  Read more about this on our Expert Integrated Systems Blog.
