Thousands of IT engagements... On a smarter planet, organizations will no longer address complex challenges with generic systems. Instead they can rely on integrated systems with the built-in expertise to help solve them. ibm.com/simplify TO READY IN HOURS. expert integrated systems can be up and running in as little as four hours.2 And once deployed, these systems can automatically scale and adjust resources as the needs of the business change --- a process that might otherwise take weeks ---freeing IT people to focus on larger, more strategic goals. With the launch of PureSystems, TMwearenow delivering on that promise. Using patterns established by IBM and leading software vendors, this new breed of which automate processes, speeding up deployments and simplifying management. So you're on to the next thing. INTRODUCING IBM PURESYSTEMS. To address this problem, IBM set out to design a system that could benefit from previous experience --- a system that could follow the patterns established by successful IT projects to make it simpler to deploy and manage new ones. 1. Based on a 2011 commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of IBM. 2. Based upon testing of the IBM PureApplication System W1500-96 with time measured from powering on the system to when it is ready to support application deployments and based upon testing of the IBM PureFlex System Express & Standard models containing one chassis and one compute node with the time measured from powering on the system to when it is ready to support a virtual image deployment.

According to Forrester, the typical IT department spends at least 33% of a project's budget just specifying, designing and procuring IT components. And once procured, it can take up to three months of tweaking before those resources are ready to be used.1 With decades of experience and thousands of deployments in the same industries, on the same topics, even for the same tasks ---why is it that organizations are forced to waste massive amounts of time and resources starting from scratch with every new project?
