XCS eiPlatform enabled on IBM PureFlex Systems

On average, more than 70 percent of IT budgets is spent on operations and maintenance. Two-thirds of companies go over schedule on their project deployments. Leading research firms agree that about 50% of a typical company's entire IT budget is spent on building, deploying, managing and maintaining interfaces. To overcome existing IT inefficiencies, IT leaders must shift their functional model to smarter computing. The time has come for a new way forward, one that combines the flexibility of general-purpose systems, the elasticity of cloud and the simplicity of an appliance tuned to the workload. When expertise is integrated throughout your enterprise, the experience and economics of IT will fundamentally change.

Today, IT leaders employ a variety of approaches in their effort to create smarter computing. PilotFish and IBM can help. PilotFish partners with IBM to deliver innovative solutions to help clients improve the effectiveness of their business.

Companies that have implemented PilotFish’s XCS eiPlatform have experienced as much as a 95% reduction in interface management expense. To meet today’s complex and ever-changing business demands IBM announced IBM PureSystems, the first family of systems offering built-in expertise, integration by design, and simplified experience. These systems are based on “patterns of expertise” which can dramatically improve the time to value for businesses with changing needs. Recently, PilotFish enabled their XCS eiPlatform on IBM PureFlex, a product in the PureSystems family.

PilotFish’s XCS eiPlatform solution provides all members of the value chain with the means to effectively share data and information in a timely manner. The XCS eiPlatform, enterprise integration software, using industry XML standards as common translation models, is designed specifically to handle the nuances of each industry’s information exchange and the semantics of each standard. For those participants that have chosen to implement an XML standard, the XCS eiPlatform provides more flexibility to deal with each industry’s unique data requirements, varying interpretations and releases of their standards. It is why standards organizations themselves are our customers.

IBM PureFlex System is a comprehensive infrastructure system that provides an expert integrated computing system. It combines servers, enterprise storage, networking, virtualization, and management into a single structure. Its built-in expertise enables XCS eiPlatform to manage and flexibly deploy integrated patterns of virtual and hardware resources through unified management to support PilotFish clients. These systems deliver the simplicity of an integrated solution while still able to tune middleware and the runtime environment. Using built-in virtualization across servers, storage, and networking, the infrastructure system enables automated scaling of resources and true workload mobility.

XCS eiPlatform enabled on IBM PureFlex System has integrated patterns of expertise, and has undergone significant testing and experimentation to mitigate IT complexity without compromising the flexibility to tune systems to meet clients’ business demands. By providing both flexibility and simplicity, IBM PureFlex System can provide extraordinary levels of IT control, efficiency, and operating agility to the XCS eiPlatform. With XCS eiPlatform enabled on IBM PureSystems, clients will be able to lower costs, maintain greater flexibility, and stay focused on driving innovation for their business, instead of devising, testing and tuning custom integration solutions.

XCS eiPlatform virtual appliance pattern for IBM PureFlex System will soon be available for download. Please call contact PilotFish Support for more details.
