IBM announces a definitive agreement to acquire Emptoris Inc., a leading provider of cloud and on-premise analytics software that brings more intelligence to procurement and supply chain operations with spend, supplier and contract management for Smarter Commerce.
The acquisition is the latest addition to IBM's Smarter Commerce initiative, which is aimed at helping companies respond to shifting customer buying patterns. IBM has estimated that the Smarter Commerce initiative is a $20 billion market opportunity in software alone. Emptoris brings to IBM Smarter Commerce a set of new, flexible and integrated solutions that orchestrate and manage the sourcing and procurement of goods and materials as part of supply chain management. Supply chain intelligence using these solutions enables better inventory management and can create large savings opportunities.
With this acquisition, IBM builds on its capabilities in the "buy" aspect of Smarter Commerce and extends it to a new line of c-suite executives - chief procurement officers. Procurement and sourcing professionals increasingly need better supplier management, spend analysis and contract management solutions to lower sourcing costs and risks. Emptoris is a leader in delivering these benefits by automating vendor selection, negotiation, management and compliance.

IBM-chef Uffe Sørensen: Derfor siver Lotus-brugerne væk
Et af de helt varme emner på IBM-konferencen Lotusphere er fremtiden for flagskibsproduktet Lotus Notes. Big Blues europæiske Lotus-direktør, danske Uffe Sørensen, fortæller til Computerworld, at it-giganten allerede nu kan mærke, at kunderne lige så stille begynder at fordampe fra Lotus Notes. Han regner da også med, at der inden for fem til 10 år vil være markant færre Notes-kunder.
"Vi vil stadig levere de samme services med mail og kalender, men det sker bare på andre platforme som eksempelvis mobiltelefoner og i browsere," forklarer Uffe Sørensen og fastslår, at antallet af IBM-kunder dermed ikke vil falde.
Måske tværtimod. Han fremhæver i hvert fald, at når IBM's mailkunder findes på andre platforme og i lettere versioner som en i browserbaseret mailklient, så gør det også kundernes desktop-administration billgere at håndtere.
"E-mail kører på vores Domino-servere, og jeg tror bare, at antallet af folk med brug for det rige Notes-miljø vil være formindsket. Jeg ville dog aldrig selv skrive en kompleks e-mail på min mobiltelefon, og der vil selvfølgelig stadig være kunder, der foretrækker Notes-klienten frem for andre platforme," lyder det fra Uffe Sørensen.
Dræber ikke Notes-klienten Dermed bakker han op omkring Lotus-boss Alistair Rennies udsagn om, at IBM fortsat vil pumpe investeringsmidler i Lotus Notes, men det er på andre platforme, at selskabet for alvor hejser sejlene.
"Vi dræber ikke Notes-klienten, men vi leverer bare de samme services på andre klienter, selv om de helt store forandringer nok ikke sker lige nu og her," siger Uffe Sørensen...

Cloud at Pulse 2012 According to a new IBM survey, business and IT leaders expect to more than double cloud implementations over the next three years, establishing business infrastructures that drive innovation and revenue.

A major focus of Pulse 2012, the cloud curriculum will feature an array of high profile industry analysts and visionaries, leading enterprise clients from around the globe, and senior-level IBM executives. Specific cloud attractions at Pulse 2012 include an executive cloud keynote, cloud demos, expo theater presentations, birds-of-a-feather sessions, meet-the-experts, a cloud-simulator and over 20 breakouts.
An event for European Consultants and Systems integrators
IBM Montpellier, France – March 29th - 30th
A private cloud allows you to offer your customers the benefits of cloud computing – self-service, automation, consolidation and metered usage – behind the safety of their firewall on their own virtual private network. Being able to build successful private clouds environments is key for your business. IBM offers multiple pathways for deploying private clouds, ranging from high-touch service engagements, which will take on the entire task of bringing cloud computing to a customer based on their specific needs, to integrated “quick start” solutions such as IBM Service Delivery Manager. For customers who prefer to perform their own integration of private clouds, IBM provides a choice of hardware and software building blocks, along with recommendations and a reference architecture that will help lead the way to a successful deployment.
This one-and-a-half day workshop will go into the details of these solutions. It is targeted specifically at Consultants & System Integrators.
You'll see: How our Cloud Computing technology strategy articulates how our offerings can help you build private Clouds with presentations of Workload Deployer but also TSAM (Tivoli Service automation Manager), ISDM (IBM Service Delivery Manager), TUAM (Tivoli Usage and Accounting Manager) or Cast Iron how our storage portfolio integrates in the cloud computing environments how we implemented all these solutions in our Cloud Computing Data Center how to secure your Cloud Computing environments

Your Own Device i praksis: Sådan gør IBM Det
gælder om at have de store linjer på plads, når én politik for
425.000 medarbejderes egne it-apparater skal bruges på jobbet. Se
hvordan IBM håndterer udfordringen.
skære 425.000 medarbejdere over én kam rent it-udstyrsmæssigt
lyder som en umulighed. Og det er det da også. Men
at lade alle 425.000 medarbejdere selv bestemme, hvilket udstyr de
ønsker at bruge, lyder som en næsten lige så indlysende umulighed.
Det er det bare ikke. Version2
har talt med IBM's globale it-chef Jeanette Horan om udfordringen ved
Bring Your Own Device-bølgen (BYOD), der netop nu skyller ind over
it-chefernes skriveborde som en tsunami.
