CMI White Paper Puts Spotlight on IBM PureSystems

Marin Firm Makes Business Case for Big Blue’s Latest Technology

[September 28th, 2012. Mill Valley, CA] – Chouinard & Myhre, Inc (CMI) today released their latest “CMI Technical White Paper” highlighting IBM’s latest foray into consolidated or “converged” computing, IBM PureSystems.

CMI’s Director of Professional Services, Alexander Price authored the White Paper, and he brings a common sense, business case-driven approach to the topic.

The result is a solid, stepwise view of Big Blue’s latest technical wunderkind: PureSyetems. As CMI’s Chief Technology Officer, Kris Neely says, “When I read this White Paper, I was reminded that IT Managers, Data Center Managers, and CIOs and CTOs from coast-to-coast know that converged technologies just make operational and financial sense. That’s why you see tech giants like IBM and Cisco toe-to-toe in the converged infrastructure market – there’s customer demand for a technology that drives cost and complexity out of the market and simplicity and availability in.”

The White Paper spares the reader from a tedious slog thru speeds-andfeeds, or a laundry list of features-and-benefits, and takes a more real-world, how-would-people-really-use-this approach. Yet the business cases for PureSystems are always close by, as well.

Neely went on, “This White Paper is a bit like PureSystems itself, a clear-cut presentation of key facts and rational for PureSystems that any CIO, CFO, or CEO can and will relate to. The technology is timely, and so is this White Paper.”
