CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee – October 2, 2012 – InfoSystems, one of the fastest-growing technology solutions providers in the Southeast, will showcase IBM PureSystems in their IBM Business Partner Innovation Center (BPIC) on Thursday, October 18. The InfoSystems BPIC is the only facility of its kind in Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama.
“Our first responsibility is to be the absolute best resource for our customers,” said Clay Hales, president and CEO of InfoSystems. “The BPIC gives our employees a place to gain hands-on experience by learning ‘on the fly’ and it opens the door for our customers to test technology solutions for their businesses before they implement onsite. It’s a win-win.”
The event will feature guest presenters from IBM, and InfoSystems technical experts will be on hand to discuss the expected benefits of this technology and how it can be applied in a business’ unique technical environment. Two demonstrations and panel discussions will be offered at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. at the InfoSystems office at 1317 Hickory Valley Road in Chattanooga. Guests can also enjoy refreshments, tour the BPIC and meet the InfoSystems’ team of experts.
BPIC centers are owned and operated by IBM Premier Business Partners who provide delivery of complex solutions to customers. Facilities such as the one at InfoSystems can be the ideal venue for IBM Business Partners to showcase their industry-leading solutions and new technologies. IBM Business Partners with BPICs are regarded as being marketplace leaders in new technologies and frequently earn industry recognition, as evidenced by InfoSystems’ recent track record of awards.
IBM PureSystems, announced on April 11 this year, builds on knowledge gained from years of innovation, thousands of deployments and $2 billion in research, which led IBM to create a simplified approach that could “fundamentally change the economics of IT,” according to Rod Adkins, senior vice president for the IBM Systems and Technology Group. The shift in economics Adkins refers to comes from automating tasks associated with the deployment and ongoing management of computer networks and storage systems that are typically performed manually by an engineer, saving significant amounts of labor costs and freeing up personnel to focus on other business initiatives.
