Delivering business performance computing

IBM zEnterprise System helps you meet increasing business demands with flat budgets.

The growth of SAP systems and data can result in an unaffordable IT infrastructure that inhibits your ability to respond to changing market requirements. The revolutionary design of the IBM® zEnterprise® System addresses the complexity and inefficiency of today's multi-architecture data centers by giving you the ability to integrate and unify IBM System z®, IBM Power® and IBM System x® resources as one complete system.

The IBM System z Solution Edition for SAP Applications provides an integrated and robust platform for deploying new SAP functions that are designed to provide a flexible, scalable, secure environment to support your evolving SAP requirements.
