In October 2012, Stott Hoare invited its clients to attend a presentation by Alan Waite, National Manager, IBM Expert Integrated Systems on the revolutionary IBM PureSystems.

“The IBM PureSystems approach represents industry-leading, game-changing technology that can simplify increasingly complex IT environments and reduce administration costs,” said Jim Loader, Stott Hoare Managing Director.

“We’re proud that the strength of our relationship with IBM enabled Stott Hoare to secure such a world-renowned expert as Alan to personally host a presentation on the significant benefits of PureSystems technology.”

During a career spanning 25 years with IBM, Alan Waite has become an evangelist for Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions and Cloud. He is currently spearheading the introduction of the new category of IT solutions – Expert Integrated Systems – across Australia and New Zealand.

This new breed of systems – Expert Integrated Systems – combines the flexibility of general purpose computing, the elasticity of Cloud, and the simplicity of an appliance tuned to the workload, to fundamentally change the experience and economics of IT.

In his presentation, Alan outlined how research indicates that the average proportion of total IT budgets that is devoted to management and administration expenses has increased from 29% in 1996 to an estimated 68% in 2013.

This staggering escalation represents a critical challenge for IT organisations – how can they simplify increasingly complex IT environments to turn this trend around – reducing management expenses and enabling investment in new capabilities and value?

Alan explained that the IBM PureFlex System™ is a fully integrated system that provides unified management of compute, storage, networking and virtualisation resources and utilises built-in Patterns of Expertise based on IBM's decades of experience and thousands of client deployments.

He described how the PureSystems suite achieves efficient, lower-cost unified management by eliminating the complexity and cost of multi-vendor infrastructure – and delivers superior performance by simplifying the integration of server, storage, networking, virtualisation, security and management.

IBM PureSystems deliver innovations that:

  • Simplify system deployment, management and maintenance.
  • Provide greater system performance, scalability and efficiency – through deep integration by design.
  • Accelerate the benefits of Cloud computing.
  • Integrate and automate best practices through patterns of expertise – delivered from IBM, solution partners, and captured by clients themselves.

Alan also discussed how the built-in expertise of IBM PureSystems simplifies and automates work across each phase of the system life cycle:

  • Streamlining the design and procurement phase – eliminating the need to define and buy a set of parts.
  • Accelerating solution development and deployment – with a factory optimised, ready to run system.
  • Simplifying ongoing management – with greater self-optimisation and self-healing and an integrated management console.
  • Integrating support and upgrades – with a single line of support and integrated system updates.

“Alan Waite’s presentation was compelling, and was further enhanced by Stott Hoare Sales Manager Brian Hawkins who explained how Stott Hoare can help its clients integrate PureSystems technology most effectively to maximise its potential benefits,” said Jim Loader.

“Stott Hoare is excited by the amazing opportunities IBM Expert Integrated Systems present to make IT management and administration simpler and more cost-effective.
We’re looking forward to assisting our clients to get the very best from revolutionary PureSystems technology,” concluded Jim.
