IBM®  Performance Management, Testing and Scalability Services
In today's e-business driven economy, networks, systems and applications
provide the foundation for mission-critical business operations. Because
success revolves around effective infrastructure and systems management,
companies must implement and maintain information technology (I/T)
infrastructures capable of supporting business processes, managing massive
data
transactions and communicating simultaneously with multiple systems.
Furthermore, as users become increasingly dependent on technology to carry out
their daily job functions, performance problems or insufficient data storage
capacity can stifle growth, increase costs and adversely affect user
satisfaction.
IBM Performance Management, Testing and Scalability (PMTS) Services helps your
organization-- regardless of its size--capitalize on future business
opportunities, and provide your staff with the ability to improve system
performance and reduce costs on an ongoing basis. Furthermore, with greater
system reliability, you can increase user productivity and satisfaction. By
understanding system requirements, capabilities and costs early in the
development process, you can improve project planning to help ensure success.
Market studies indicate that business success is assured by proper use of
performance, scalability and interoperability services.  In addition, we can
help improve your strategic planning and reduce development costs by
incorporating performance and capacity methods into business planning
processes.
PMTS Services offer access to global locations for leading-edge facilities,
methodologies, and tools. Because your organization has a unique environment,
we offer a wide range of services to develop tailored solutions based on your
needs. Our specialists can assist you with solutions from e-business
application tests to performance analyses of Web applications in complex
network environments, with targeted and flexible services at your own location
or at one of our performance management and testing centers.
By providing access to our fully equipped global facilities, methodologies,
and
tools, our consultants can help companies of any size resolve critical
performance issues and enhance enterprise applications, such as customer
relationship management, enterprise resource planning or supply chain
management.
