“Our customers are excited about the new expert integrated systems because they see them as a way to operate and optimize heterogeneous environments."-Charlie Cox, President of Technology Infrastructure Solutions
Minnetonka, MN (PRWEB) April 25, 2012
Datatrend Technologies, an IT solutions provider, today announced a new solution practice focused on the recent launch of the IBM PureSystems® product family. The new family of expert integrated systems brings smart computing to a new level by delivering three key characteristics: built-in expertise, integration by design, and a simplified experience.
The new solution practice at Datatrend is designed for commercial and public sector customers who need help reducing their IT complexity and improving their IT economics by considering a forward-thinking approach to deploying and managing IT environments. The workload optimized systems provide a more open, agile, and integrated computing solution that is dynamically managed from a single vantage point to simultaneously maximize efficiency and innovation.
Datatrend has been an early experience partner and is fully trained on the new systems, with thought leadership and expertise ready to go on announcement day. With the new capabilities, Datatrend experts will help organizations determine which solution and configuration are right for their specific needs and ensure the solution is tied into the existing infrastructure and management systems in an optimum manner.
Datatrend’s new solutions and services address the acute nature of IT-related pain which customers in all organizations experience in today’s economy. These organizations often have overtaxed IT resources and underfunded projects, and a common complaint is that too many dollars are spent on maintaining systems rather than driving innovation and serving customers better. The new solution practice aims to address and alleviate these challenges and concerns.
IBM PureSystems combine the flexibility of a general purpose system, the elasticity of cloud computing, and the simplicity of an appliance tuned to the workload. The new offering uniquely brings together servers, storage, networking, and management, along with built-in-expertise, to enable workloads to run efficiently in an agile environment and integrate into an existing IT infrastructure through open standards. It represents a workload optimized system that is easy to deploy and manage and provides a platform for rapid application development.
“A recurring theme amongst the organizations we speak to is the overly complex nature of IT that seems to suffer from ever-diminishing returns,” remarked Charlie Cox, Datatrend’s President of Technology Infrastructure Solutions. “Our customers are excited about the new expert integrated systems because they see them as a way to operate and optimize heterogeneous environments by providing the right architecture for the right workload.”
Client initiatives that can be addressed by Datatrend’s expert integrated systems solution practice include consolidation or optimization of systems and applications to reduce costs and/or improve performance and utilization, delivering new applications and services to meet business needs, and accelerating cloud initiatives for a secure and integrated cloud environment. Additional client benefits include improved control and security through simplicity and automation.
Cox added, “We have been immersed in the technology for quite some time now as it was being developed and brought to market, and so we wanted to build a practice that would enable customers to quickly and cost effectively realize the promise of the new integrated systems to enable their business initiatives from concept to plug-in.”
Datatrend also announced that their sales and technical specialists will continue to expand their capabilities, certifications, and expertise in expert integrated systems consulting, design, and implementation. In addition, the company plans to expand its portfolio of products and services to meet the marketplace need for solutions which deliver real-time scalability, faster time-to-value, and quicker insights to gain a competitive advantage.
