  • 85. IBM Power SystemsIntroduction – Power is Performance Redefined For the past 10 years, through sustained investment in Industry benchmarks and our IBM POWER® processor the Power Systems platform, IBM has gone head-to- technology are, and always will be, important. In the past head with our competitors in the UNIX market segment, they have enabled us to clearly and succinctly and we won. Today, according to IDC, IBM commands a demonstrate our leadership position in terms of POWER 47 percent share of the worldwide UNIX market processor performance versus our competitors. And we segment.1 The next 10 years, however, will be about will continue to set those leadership benchmarks for the helping our clients implement smarter computing. And for industry. But today the conversation must go beyond the the Power Systems platform, that battle will center on our performance of our systems and be framed in the alternative value proposition to Linux and Microsoft broader context of smarter computing. Power is Windows technology on x86 servers. To do that, we performance redefined sets out how we intend to shift need to move beyond talking about pure system the conversation with our clients. It defines how the performance and industry benchmarks to placing a Power Systems platform, and our associated software sharper focus on the performance of our clients’ and services, can enable our clients to embrace smarter businesses and the business benefits of the IBM Power computing and derive business benefits from Systems platform. implementing big data, workload optimized infrastructure and cloud projects. In this messaging guide, you will learn that smarter computing isn’t a product we sell; it isn’t something clients can buy. Smarter computing is something our clients can implement through projects on the Power Systems platform to achieve better business outcomes. And it is smarter computing, enabled by IBM Power Systems servers, that will help our clients deliver services faster, with higher quality and with superior economics. 1 – IDC, “UNIX Server Rolling Four Quarter Average Revenue Share,” Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker, 2Q2011. © 2012 IBM Corporation
  • 86. IBM Power SystemsSmarter Computing – The Next Era of IT But this radical change is placing enormous pressure on businesses of practically every size, in just about every industry. The barriers of entry for competitors are lower. Companies can be blindsided by competitors that appear seemingly out of nowhere and seize market share by the handful. The need to be proactive, which requires an agile, flexible human and IT infrastructure, is critical. New ways of working, such as social media and mobile technologies, must be embraced ahead of the curve. Even customers are changing. Newly empowered by information, their expectations and the number of influencers that must be marketed to are rising. External forces such as compliance, regulations, privacy and security threats have to be addressed to survive. Ubiquitous mobile devices and instrumented, intelligent objects are creating unimaginable amounts of data volumes every day—data that must be analyzed to reveal systemic patterns, trends and insights that in turn inform the decisions businesses must make to stay competitive. And to deal with these changes, IT architectures must move from heterogeneous silos to flexible, workload optimized infrastructures. All of these forces must be dealt with in an era of tighter budgets and the directive to do more with less. But smarter companies are thinking differently about computing and how to deal with data that is growing exponentially and can become stagnant and unexploited simply because of its sheer volume. These smarter companies are breaking the vicious cycle of untrustworthy data, inflexibility and sprawl. They are reversing the always-guessing, reactive, costly IT conundrum by embracing what we call smarter computing. What smarter computing entails is the creation of an IT infrastructure that is designed for data and that harnesses enterprise information to unlock insights and make better, more informed choices. Organizations embracing smarter computing are creating IT infrastructures that are tuned to the task of the business, helping reduce costs by driving greater efficiency and performance for virtually every workload. And smarter computing is managed with cloud technologies, speeding delivery of services and creating an IT environment that has practically no boundaries, enabling the reinvention of processes and driving innovation. But to be clear, smarter computing isn’t just a catch phrase or a lofty idea. It’s not a metaphor, intro paragraph or headline. It’s what the IBM Power Systems platform enables our clients to do. And this is the basis for our new brand identity Power is performance redefined. It’s about how we believe clients measure IT performance – focusing less on processor performance and more on business performance. It’s about our clients’ ability to react more quickly to change, to innovate faster, and to seize new opportunities as they arise. It’s about their ability to handle rapid growth and combat emerging competitors while responding to demands to meet increasingly higher service levels. And it’s about doing more with less and delivering services within constrained IT budgets. We believe that with a new focus on business performance, we will enable our clients to deliver services faster, with higher quality and superior economics. Our message to clients is that, with Power Systems solutions, we can help them achieve these goals as they deploy smarter computing projects. © 2012 IBM Corporation
  • 87. IBM Power SystemsPower is Performance Redefined In this new smarter computing era for business and IT, forward-thinking companies consider more than server performance, existing skills and ease of management when choosing a platform for new application workloads. They also evaluate how well the platform will help them achieve three core business objectives: delivering services faster, with higher quality and superior economics. By implementing smarter computing projects on an IBM Power Systems platform, businesses can outpace their competitors by delivering services faster. They can differentiate their offerings from the competition by delivering higher quality services. And they can turn operational cost into investment opportunity by delivering services with superior economics. © 2012 IBM Corporation
