Duration: 60 minutes
Historically, both application development and IT operations teams have relied on manual, fragmented management processes and tools that often slow time to market, result in lost revenue and unexpected downtime, and create employee productivity problems. Join Kyle Brown, IBM Distinguished Engineer and Lead PureSystems' Consultant and Mary Johnston Turner, Research Vice President, Enterprise System Management Software IDC; as they discuss the market dynamics for integrated systems, the economics of adopting these systems, and why expert integrated systems have the potential to radically simplify the IT lifecycle, improve application performance, and accelerate time to value. Examples of IT life cycle improvements discovered through IBM's client experiences with IBM PureSystems offerings will be disclosed.

the opportunities for integrated or converged offerings to help simplify and streamline IT
why it is important to look across the entire IT life cycle, and not just the initial procure and deploy stages when considering an integrated or converged offering
