IBM Helping Businesses Tackle Cloud, Analytics, Mobile, Social Media

IBM has released preliminary study findings of 750 global organizations that show that less than 10 percent are fully prepared to address the proliferation of cloud computing, analytics, mobile devices and social media, so Big Blue is providing new systems to help them. Preliminary findings from IBM's Institute for Business Value study show that organizations are unprepared to tackle the next wave of technology trends. Thus, addressing this challenge head-on, IBM is unveiling new systems, software and capabilities designed to help organizations create smarter infrastructures that yield faster access to big data insights through the cloud and improved business performance. Building on last week's software-defined storage launch, in which IBM announced new software that enables organizations to access any data from any device from anywhere in the world, the company has announced new and enhanced capabilities across its storage portfolio. Advances in its Storwize, XIV, tape library and flash storage products can optimize storage for large-scale cloud deployments through virtualization, real-time compression, easy tiering and mirroring, and provide clients with fast access to information. IBM announced the new systems at the IBM Edge 2014 conference in Las Vegas.
