I'm really excited that PureSystems launched this week IBM. It's the first offering in a brand new system category from IBM — a new class of systems known as "Expert Integrated Systems." The technology is designed to get IT organizations up and running in as little as four hours, cutting months off the time required to deploy new applications. IBM PureSystems combines the flexibility of a general-purpose system, the elasticity of the cloud, and the simplicity of an appliance.
We're also preparing for Innovate. developerWorks Rational Editor Robin Wood and I will both be going and look forward to meeting you there.
