ARMONK, N.Y:  Amidst of growing need of cloud, analytics and mobile technologies, IBM has announced that this trend is driving interest in IBM systems in geographies around the world.

According to a recent IBM study, four technologies - Big Data and Analytics, Cloud, Mobile and Social - are no longer just buzzwords but have become key ingredients of enterprise software development and IT infrastructures.  Seventy percent of enterprises are now using Big Data and Analytics, Cloud, Mobile and Social and 75 percent of enterprise decision makers now consider these technologies as strategically important to their organizations, up from 66 percent in 2012.

“IT infrastructure is crucial to meet the demands of clients in this new era of computing,” says Stephen Leonard, General Manager, Sales, IBM Systems & Technology Group.

“A new generation of IBM systems is helping clients modernize their IT environments for emerging big data, cloud computing, mobile and social technologies. Clients are migrating from non-IBM systems to infrastructures based on these IBM systems and the results they are seeing demonstrate that the right infrastructure does matter.”

Clients that have switched from non-IBM servers to an IBM infrastructure to meet their Big Data, cloud, mobile and social needs include: Alabama-based Logista Solutions, a managed services provider building upon its expertise in data center implementation and design; Brazil's Algar Telecom and The eThekwini Municipality, a government organization in the province of KwaZulu-Natal that provides civic services to the approximately 3.5 Mn citizens of Durban, South Africa.
