IBM PERSPECTIVE
Strengthening the Experience
ne of the things I enjoy most about my role is that I get to be part
of the tight-knit IBM System z* community. It boils down to a nearly
50-year partnership comprising our clients, business partners and
IBM—all coming together to improve the customer experience.

The most important takeaway,
however, isn’t any one of these
individual innovations. It’s
what our clients can do and are
doing with them to bring new
capabilities and value to their
customers for an improved experience. They’re able to offer new
channels for purchasing products or services, suggest related
products based on a current
purchase, and deliver the highest
levels of security and availability
to customers’ accounts.
To deliver this kind of strengthened customer experience, businesses must embrace the tech-

analytics, cloud and mobile.

this new channel, what’s
most often overlooked is
the underlying infrastructure
supporting it. Access to that
new channel has to be always

are the opportunities. Organizations are betting
their success on the IT
choices they make. It
makes sense then to
build an infrastructure on the most
advanced, secure
and reliable system.
