"The flexibility and scalability required is perfectly suited for IBM PureFlex technology, which allows Damco IT to meet business demands in a faster and more streamlined fashion," said Henrik Frokjaer, Vice President for IBM's outsourcing business in the Nordics. "Moving forward we will continue to work with Damco on ways that IBM can add further value to Damco."The IBM PureSystems family offers clients an alternative to current enterprise computing models, where multiple and disparate systems require significant resources to set up and maintain. The true value of PureSystems is that it offers a portfolio of fully integrated and pre-tuned platforms. The PureFlex System enables organizations to more efficiently create and manage an infrastructure. The PureApplication System helps organizations reduce the cost and complexity of rapidly deploying and managing applications. The PureData System is tuned for cloud computing and can consolidate more than 100 databases on a single system. In addition to the common web application patterns supported by PureApplication System, the combination of both PureData and PureApplication Systems can also be used for end to end transaction workloads. Since the introduction of PureSystems in April of 2012, more than 4000 systems have been shipped to clients in more than 90 countries around the world.
