Cincom Synchrony Receives IBM Certification for PureSystemsCustomer Experience Management Solution Among First IBM Business Partners Certified on New Expert Integrated Systems (April 11, 2012)
CINCINNATI, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 04/11/12 -- Cincom Systems, a worldwide provider of business software, is among the first IBM (NYSE: IBM) Business Partners to be "Ready for IBM PureSystems," offering customers simplified deployment and maintenance of IT solutions.
A New Approach to IT -- PureSystems
In today's economy, companies cannot afford to move slowly. Businesses around the world are undertaking transformational journeys to become smarter and free up their IT personnel and budgets so they can deploy new and innovative capabilities faster.
PureSystems is IBM's response to this changing business landscape. PureSystems is a new class of expert integrated systems that combine the flexibility of a general-purpose system, the elasticity of cloud and the simplicity of an appliance. Expert integrated systems fundamentally change the experience and economics of IT with:
- Built-in expertise: Capturing and automating everything -- from the infrastructure to the application
- Integration by design: Deeply integrating and tuning hardware and software in a single, ready-to-go system
- Simplified experience: Making every part of the IT lifecycle easier with integrated management and a broad, open ecosystem of optimized solutions
This smarter computing approach will dramatically speed the deployment of new IT processes and services, while reducing many of the risks and inefficiencies that are inherent in today's fixed IT solutions.
