Build and manage highly efficient infrastructure to respond to change and drive innovation
Advancements such as cloud, social, mobile and analytics are placing greater demands on your IT infrastructure. But hardware-centric, inefficient infrastructures struggle to support market shifts. Systems Services from IBM helps you integrate traditional systems and new architectures—like cloud—into a dynamic, open-standards-based infrastructure. We help create a software-defined environment that uses patterns of expertise to automatically anticipate and deploy infrastructure resources based on workload needs. We offer a flexible approach that can address your needs at any point in your service optimisation journey.

IBM's vision for the next-generation data centre
The next-generation data centre answers the need for a simpler, adaptive infrastructure, able to respond to disruptive change, melt technology silos and integrate legacy and new architectures in a single, manageable ecosystem. It is a software defined environment (SDE) in which server, storage, network and facilities resources are automatically provisioned and configured by software programmed to understand and adapt decisions to the requirements of each workload in real time.
