Report from the IBM Business Partner Summit at IBM Impact 2013

The IBM Business Partner Summit at IBM Impact 2013 was a great success, yielding some interesting new insights on how independent software vendors (ISVs) and managed service providers (MSPs) are leveraging IBM® PureSystems™ to their advantage in today’s evolving marketplace.

In his latest blog on Expert Integrated Systems, Joao Perez, Vice President, Global Sales, IBM PureSystems, explains why ISVs and MSPs are attracted to the PureSystems family of products. Talking with IBM Business Partners face-to-face yielded the following high-level impressions:

  • The cloud application platform capabilities of the IBM PureApplication™ System can help ISVs stay competitive by delivering application deployments more rapidly.
  • Built-in expertise in IBM PureSystems products enables every part of the IT lifecycle to become faster and more efficient by reducing complexity, lowering costs and speeding up IT service delivery.
  • Secure cloud-based services can be deployed quicker than ever before, while giving MSPs an integrated platform that leverages IBM SmartCloud® technology and supports the entire spectrum of cloud services.
  • IBM co-marketing, training and certification is helping MSPs expand their market and deliver the quality of service their customers require.
