The world is getting smarter as it is more instrumented, interconnected, and intelligent: we are living in a smarter planet. The data center of today is being called upon to deliver a dynamic and real-time IT infrastructure that can support business transformation as the smarter planet increases the scale, complexity, and diversity of workloads. Pervasive instrumentation will create vast amounts of data and drive new types of applications that require real-time data analysis and predictive intelligence.
Historic approaches bent business process around the limitations of technologies; today the expectation is for the technology to align with business process. The one-size-fits-all approach is no longer sufficient for organizations that are seeking to maximize their competitive advantage and ROI on IT investments. Organizations’ strategic approach to IT must evolve to meet the corporate need not only of today, but of tomorrow as well.
In this paper, we examine the importance of IT‘s ability to deliver a dynamic, scalable, and optimized infrastructure that is tailored to an organization’s workloads. We will review how IBM is embracing the smarter planet by delivering a Dynamic Infrastructure upon which workload-optimized solutions can be deployed to effectively meld business process with IT infrastructure. We will also highlight an example workload-optimized solution that addresses the vexing challenge of traffic congestion management in the inner city. With its workload-optimized approach, IBM has positioned itself to address organizations’ search for an IT infrastructure that not only meets the present need, but can act as a catalyst to drive business transformation and enhanced competitive positioning in the marketplace.
