Minnetonka, MN (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
Today, Datatrend Technologies, an IT solution provider, announces enhancements to its IBM PureSystems® solution practice. In addition to training and certifying its technical and sales personnel on both the IBM PureFlex® System and IBM PureApplication® System – and installing a PureFlex System in its Technology Solution Center – Datatrend will soon become an authorized implementer of the PureFlex System.
In April, Datatrend announced a new solution practice focused on IBM PureSystems, the new family of expert integrated systems aimed at reducing IT complexity and improving IT economics through workload optimized systems and a forward-thinking approach to deploying and managing IT environments. Since then, Datatrend has been assisting clients in evaluating the PureFlex System and the PureApplication System through tailored on-site briefings, web-based briefings, demos, and whiteboarding sessions.
Now, Datatrend will be participating in a “PureFlex Masters Class” that provides deep technical skill development to become one of a handful of IBM Business Partners authorized to perform complete implementation services for the PureFlex System. Otherwise, only IBM Lab Services personnel are enabled to provide the implementation.
“We’ve been speaking with a variety of customers in the financial services, telecommunications, public sector, and other industries, and a recurring theme is where to start,” explains Charlie Cox, President of Datatrend’s Technology Infrastructure Solutions division. “They are intrigued by the uniqueness of PureSystems, but want to know more about how it will interoperate in their IT environment and how best to take advantage of the ‘patterns’ of expertise in real and tangible ways. They want a roadmap that reduces their IT focus on day-to-day maintenance and putting out fires, and frees them to spend quality time on innovation and finding ways to increase efficiencies, profits, and cost savings.”
Cox added, “Our goal is to be a full-service provider of PureSystems solutions for our clients. We want to be able to help them from start to finish, from working with them to determine the best system and configuration to meet their business needs, to deploying the solution in their environment with our ‘white glove’ service. Expanding and deepening our expertise and continuing to work with clients in a side-by-side advisory role will enable us to serve them even better as they explore, consider, and ultimately select these expert integrated systems to grow and prosper their business.”
