Built in expertise

Traditional business systems make it
possible for problems to be addressed in
different ways: with different combinations
of software and different configurations of
hardware to support this software.

Making these combinations work well for your business can be complex, costly and time- and resource-intensive. Expert integrated systems offer built-in expertise for addressing these challenges. The collective knowledge of established best practices, innovative, IT industry leadership and the distilled expertise of solution providers is captured, encapsulated and built on the system.

What are Expert
Integrated Systems?

Watch the Overview


By using built-in expertise and best practices to automate and optimize difficult
or time-consuming tasks like application or solution deployment, configuration,
provisioning, clustering and more, you can:

Expert integrated systems capture and automate best-practices and expertise, reducing manual steps that delay projects.

Patterns of expertise can be automatically balance, manage and optimize the elements of your solution, from the underlying infrastructure and platform resources up to the application. These patterns of expertise help deliver and manage today's modern business processes, services and applications. They do so by encapsulating, into a repeatable and deployable form, proven best practices and expertise gained from decades of optimizing the deployment and management of data centers, software infrastructures and applications around the world. These patterns are not just a blueprint or a set of instructions to help you; the expertise is built-in and ready to help you deliver business value.

For example, if your software development organization needs to rapidly build up and tear down development and test environments, you can quickly provision IT resources and deploy application images from a library in minutes – which can take months out of project timelines. This speed and agility supports dramatically increased business velocity so you can respond quickly to IT and business needs – taking advantage of marketplace opportunities.

Expert integrated systems have an open architecture allowing participating vendors to capture and automate their application expertise, optimizing the application for the specific system.

IBM PureSystems deliver

Patterns of expertise are available from IBM and IBM Business Partners. Solution providers, true experts in their domains, offer partners expertise for their applications – pre-tuned, pre-configured and pre-optimized – for IBM PureSystems. You get a simplified experience throughout the application lifecycle – fast deployments, improved performance and simple upgrades. All of this can translate to faster time-to-value with IBM PureSystems.

The PureSystems Centre (US) makes it easy to find patterns of expertise from IBM and IBM Business Partners. Application and platform patterns are available as well as upgrades and updates, which further simplifies the application lifecycle.

Expert integrated systems reduce the amount of in-house systems expertise you need for deploying, integrating, scaling, tuning, managing, and optimizing applications and their underlying infrastructure.

IBM PureSystems deliver

IBM PureSystems embed expertise into the systems design, optimizing configuration of the entire stack – from the hardware through the middleware and application layer – maximizing performance, reliability, and security. IBM infused the expertise gained from its development of server, storage and networking systems into the PureSystems so you get high resource utilization, reliability and performance. You can shrink your systems footprint, which saves valuable data center floor space and requires less energy for operations.

IBM also applied its management expertise derived from thousands of data center engagements and server consolidations to improve the efficiency of system management. Management automation can reduce project and operational risk and free up valuable resources by removing the dependence on manual, repetitive steps in configuration, integration, scaling, and tuning tasks.
