- PRESS RELEASE
Gulf Business Machines (GBM), the region's IT solutions provider, announced that it has been selected by the Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC) to consolidate their IT infrastructure using the latest solutions from the new IBM PureSystems family.
Through the integration of the IBM PureSystems, which falls under IBM's new category of "expert integrated systems," QCC will enjoy a 'Scale-In System Design', a new concept in system design that integrates the server, storage, and networking into a highly automated, simple-to-manage machine.
The technology and industry expertise embedded through first-of-a-kind software will also allow QCC's systems to handle basic, time-consuming tasks such as configuration, upgrades, and application requirements automatically.
"At QCC, we understand that unconsolidated IT infrastructures increase the complexity of processes and are costly to operate and maintain," said Sultan Al Kaabi, Shared Services Director, QCC. "GBM's track record in the system integration arena and the fact that they are the providers for the IBM PureSystems family were major incentives for us to select the company for this project. We are confident that this collaboration will allow us to overcome any challenges that we have been experiencing with our existing IT infrastructure."
Additional benefits which GBM will offer QCC through the deployment of the project is cloud-ready integration. The IBM PureSystems family of products is built for the cloud, thus it will enable QCC to quickly create private, self-service cloud offerings that can scale up and down automatically. Widely hailed as the evolution of a new, simpler era of computing, the new IBM PureSystems family will also help reduce the high costs and complexity associated with managing information technology.
"We are very proud to be implementing the first IBM PureSystems project in the UAE for QCC," said Miguel Khouri, Country General Manager, GBM Abu Dhabi. "As a company, we always try to offer our customers the best solutions that will drive their business forward while increasing the cost efficiency and productivity levels. As a result of a fully streamlined IT infrastructure using IBM PureSystems, QCC will be able to focus solely on its operations with reduced IT-related obstacles or inefficiencies."
GBM, the sole distributor for IBM in the GCC excluding selected products and services, excluding Saudi Arabia, announced the launch of the first IBM PureSystems technology demonstrator in the GCC earlier this month.
