Executive Summary

In the Bloor Group’s annual review of the IT industry, it has been identified three major IT trends. None of them could have caused much of a surprise. They were:

  • The growth of cloud computing
  • The growth of mobile computing and the growth of BI technology
  • We also identified the growth in the deployment of virtual machines, classifying it as a phenomenon that walked hand-in-hand with cloud computing
All of these are established trends that have been on the march for over five years and currently show no signs of losing momentum. In this paper we review IBM’s Smarter Storage portfolio of data storage and management products in the light of the challenges that most data centers face in managing the corporate data resource.
