IBM Systems Magazine, Mainframe - September/October 2012 - Intro

September 2012
Dear IBM Systems Magazine, Mainframe edition readers,
As September opens, those in the northern hemisphere officially say goodbye to summer. Vacations are over,
school is starting and the weather is cooling down! While we’ve been enjoying the season, we’ve also been
hard at work to bring you the September/October issue along with all of its special features. Not only do we
have an exciting issue that includes a feature about IBM’s newest zEnterprise system, but we also produced a
special Women in Technology supplement, the newest installment of the Services Blueprint supplement and
of course the 2013 Buyer’s Guide.
Included in this issue:
Second Generation zEnterprise System Announced
On Aug. 28, IBM announced it newest product for the Mainframe platform, the zEnterprise EC12. In addition
to a cool new look, the system boasts 120 5.5 GHz processors in the same footprint and energy envelope as
prior generations. Now that’s smart. Read about it in our cover story on page 18.
Women in Technology
We are excited to bring you a special supplement focusing on women in technology. A few short years ago,
few women held careers in the IT industry, but that trend is changing. In this supplement, we introduce you
to IBM CIO Jeanette Horan and other notable women in the industry: Roxanne Reynolds‐Lair, Zarina Stanford,
Kristine Harper, Susan Gantner and Kristen Craft. Read more about these women and the successes they
achieved during their exciting IT careers. We know that you will be as inspired by them as we are.
Services Blueprint: A New Category of Computing
Our newest issue of Services Blueprint provides vital information about what the IBM PureSystems family has
to offer. The expert integrated systems work to accelerate deployment and decrease the cost of IT for its
users. Services Blueprint provides a great resource for you as you learn more about this new system.
2013 Mainframe Buyer’s Guide
Many of you already know how valuable the Buyer’s Guide is, so we are excited to announce that the 2013
Annual Buyer’s Guide is here and ready to use. This guide is a resource that you will want to keep within
reach at all times so you can refer to it again and again. It will provide you with company showcases and their
corresponding online listings as you search for products and services to get the most from your mainframe
investment. The fact that it is available in print, digital and online formats makes it even more useful.
We hope you enjoy this new issue of IBM Systems Magazine, Mainframe edition as we feel that it is a must
read for all IBM customers. As always, if you have any feedback on the magazine, website or supplements,
please let me know.
Happy reading!
