OverviewUnlock business innovation by optimising your IT infrastructure
If you're like most IT organisations, you may be facing significant pressure to use IT to support business innovation. This newfound focus on IT as a key enabler to achieving competitive advantage and growing the business has shed light on the challenges that are keeping IT from being able to deliver greater value to the business. Most of these challenges are centred around:
All of these challenges have middleware in common. Located between your business processes and the infrastructure needed to execute them is the middleware layer. This is where everything - people, processes, information - can come together to create a seamless flow of information and insight across the enterprise.
By enabling seamless integration of the application layer with the infrastructure layer, IBM can help you optimise your IT environment, generate higher returns on IT investments, and yield greater business value and innovation from IT.
