IBM Pulse 2014 (Part 1 of 3): IT Evolution and the Cloud
Like broader IT industry trends and solutions, IBM’s Pulse conference has continued to evolve, as well. Once focused largely on the company’s Tivoli systems and platform management solutions, Pulse 2014 was branded as The Premier Cloud Conference. Some may regard that moniker as a bit of bravado but considering the conference’s Tivoli roots and how systems management is the lifeblood in data centers of every sort, it seems entirely appropriate for IBM to use Pulse as a health check for its cloud strategy.
While it is inevitable that the company’s efforts will evolve over time, Pulse 2014 demonstrated that IBM’s focus on the cloud remains crystal clear. Rather than playing to whatever group of purists happens to be in ascendency this week or month, the company is determined to place its customers first and to craft cloud solutions designed to make their work simpler, more effective and more profitable.
That continuing attention to the elemental needs of its enterprise customers has allowed IBM to build a business firmly rooted in solid ground. What better place to construct a foundation for its current and future efforts in the cloud?
