The fourth day at CeBIT was sprinkled with some amazing sessions from industry experts as well as technology evangelists.
One session which many visitors looked forward to, without a doubt, was the session by Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak (“The Woz”). The session was so packed that visitors sat on the floor to listen to the great IT icon! Wozniak spoke about more than a dozen topics varying from big data to new technology and mobile to security.

Jam packed crowd for Wozniak’s session!
IBM PureSystems at CeBIT:
- Industry solutions like insurance applications on PureApplication System (IBM Insurance Operations of the future, IBM IOF or LifeFactory by COR&FJA)
- Analytics solutions for risk management for banking (IBM Cognos BI and IBM ODM)
- Product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions
While many applications in IOF and PLM are running successfully on Websphere Application Server and DB2, the benefit of using this application environment on PureApplication System is huge. Since IBM PureApplication System completely deploys the underlying middleware automatically under the covers by using Middleware patterns, clients can easily install their IOF or PLM applications based on the deployed middleware very quickly.
In general, any application environment that requires multiple middleware products, either from IBM or non-IBM (WebSphere, MQ, Apache, Tibco, TDS MSAD, IIS, etc.) or open source (mySQL, Tomcat, JBOSS, LAMP stack, OpenLDAP, Nagios, etc.), will certainly benefit from PureSystems Patterns.
Even if users do not have a ready application pattern, they can start by deploying the middleware patterns and install the application on top of the deployed middleware pattern, semi-automatically. PureApplication System offers multiple patterns for middleware that is required to run modern web applications.
Clients are attracted by PureApplication and PureData Systems because of the benefits from the flexibility of PureApplication and Pattern deployments.
To conclude, PureApplication and PureData Systems are all about quickly on-boarding applications, optimizing time to market, reducing IT operations costs and standardize IT processes for cloud computing.
