New technology is springing up every minute. But do you know which emerging trends in business and technology in 2015 can have the biggest impact on your business and drive company growth?In late 2014, International Data Corporation (IDC) announced that the driving force behind all of its information and telecommunications technology (ICT) predictions is the industry’s accelerating transition to the 3rd Platform for innovation and growth.1 The 3rd Platform is built on the technology pillars of mobile computing, cloud services, big data and analytics, and social networking. These market forces are driving the digital economy, so new solutions are needed to address the key areas of cloud, big data, security, DevOps, applications and mobile. Today’s IBM z Systems software is designed to exploit the mobile transaction explosion— all while transforming the efficiency and economics of IT.

Join us for this complimentary webinar with Matt Eastwood, IDC Group Vice President and General Manager and Ray Jones, Vice President, z Systems software sales who will explain what the 3rd Platform era is and how IBM z Systems addresses it. They also will discuss new z System software solutions in the area of cloud, analytics, and mobile that will capitalize on these new trends and how new z Systems workloads can help businesses gain a competitive edge.

This webcast will also be available for replay after the event.
