IBM PureSystems Clients and Business Partners make an Impact

Thank you to all of our IBM PureSystems Business Partners who contributed to making IBM Impact 2014 such a success! Here are some of the highlights of the conference.


Several key PureSystems announcements were made at Impact

Great IBM PureSystems client and Business Partner discussions

We had several PureSystem clients and Business Partners present their experiences. Some key quotes include:

“We are spending too much time on areas like configuring and managing software, provisioning test environments and so on. IBM PureApplication System did a lot of the infrastructure integration work for us.”

Charaka Kithulegoda, CIO, Tangerine

We can take patterns and provide speed, consistency, and repeatability across dev, test and production. Our app teams get their production environments in minutes so they can focus on higher value problems.

Snehal Antani, CIO, GE Capital

By going with a patterns-based solution on PureApplication what we’ve been able to do is create a quick time to market, and a quick ability to change as regulations change.

Jason Stott, Senior Director, Technology Architecture Services, Walgreens

The PureApplication System is truly an open platform - not only does it offer a number of great technologies (simplified push button deployments, on demand scalability and more) but it can also extend this expertise to any vendor's software platform.

John Hawkins, Principal Consultant, Icon Solutions

The Exigen Suite is fully tested and enabled for deployment on IBM’s PureApplication Service on SoftLayer …This neatly-woven combination of cloud optimized applications, platform and infrastructure is good news to mid-market insurers.

Andrew deGroot, SVP Global Business Development and Alliances, Exigen

Positive analysts reactions

Behind the scenes it is the WebSphere patterns which are key to automate loads, especially hybrid loads.

MyPOV: is this the holy grail? taking a pattern on-premise and in the cloud and deploy anywhere #composableprocess #hybrid #cloud #ibmimpact

#PureApp service on softlayer shares the same coding as its on-premise counterpart #IBMImpact

Chris Zhang, @cmyzhang

#ibmimpact #Softlayer offers the PureApplication experience, but rebuilt the services on their own scale out hardware, not on Pure systems

Stefan Ried, @stefanRied

PureApplication System will wring new efficiencies from existing datacenters, offer seamless onboarding to virtual private cloud. #IBMImpact
