IBM Expands New Expert Integrated Systems – PureSystems
While IBM’s Impact 2012 SOA and WebSphere conference is more of an enterprise play, with bigger if fewer channel opportunities, the company held out a potentially significant opportunity with its next set of PureSystems announcements. In addition to unveiling new offerings to make it easier to create the “patterns of expertise” software capability that debuted a couple of weeks ago with the PureSystems family of expert integrated systems, Big Blue announced that both clients and partners will be able to access PureSystems through the IBM SmartCloud to create and test their patterns. These patterns are intended to streamline the set-up and management of hardware and software resources.
IBM has created a ‘cloud sandbox’, the PureSystems Cloud Trial, that will be available to developers for 90 days, to create and test applications through SmartCloud that are ready to run on the new systems. The company says by removing the hassle of server provisioning, operating system and middleware set up, and the complicated cycles of permissions and procurement associated with software development, a developer can take an idea and be creating and testing it within minutes, instead of the days something like this would normally require.
