for data, you can remove barriers to harness all available information and unlock insights to make informed choices. Examples for information integration include master data management and analytics based on structured, unstructured and streaming data. Examples of storage efficiency for this data include data compression, deduplication and smart tiering of data. Take a hard look and adopt an optimized systems methodology to tune systems for the specific task. Only then can you remove financial barriers by driving greater efficiency and performance for each workload. Examples include workload consolidation; use of appliances that are optimized to specific workloads; and use of tuned, preconfigured, optimized solutions. Take advantage of the cloud to remove barriers to rapid delivery of new services, and realize IT without boundaries to reinvent business processes and drive innovation. Examples include systems virtualization, provisioning and automation.

Our middleware addresses a broad portfolio of capabilities: information management that turns information into insights; risk, security and compliance; IT operations effectiveness and efficiency; business integration and optimization; collaboration and connection. Investments in these areas will lead

to many significant opportunities for enhancing across the spectrum of the smarter computing technologies.

Mary Shacklett is president
and CEO of Transworld Data.

Q: Over the next two to three years, what Smarter Planet technology evolutions do you see? A: Smarter computing and Smarter Planet encompass a very broad spectrum of technologies. For workload-optimized systems, we see the opportunities for several innovations as IBM works with clients and brings to bear an understanding of several workload characteristics that can be the basis of future optimized systems. IBM has a broad array of technologies and products from semiconductors and packaging to multiworkload systems, pretuned solutions, to single-workload appliances. We also have the capability to optimize across the vertical stack since we have the server and storage systems hardware, virtualization engines, operating systems and a broad variety of middleware.
