IBM PERSPECTIVE
Move at the Speed of z

W

You likely have never heard
anyone say these things and
you probably never will. In our
world, time has become our
scarcest resource. Consumers
expect prompt responses and fast
transactions. Businesses demand
instant analysis and real-time
reactions. Everyone wants this
speed and access anywhere, anytime from any device.
As we developed the IBM z13*
mainframe, we kept the resource
of time front and center. We
wanted to create a mainframe that
offered a compelling value proposition for the mobile age.
In terms of pure performance
measurements, the z13 is one of
the most sophisticated computer
systems ever built. It features the
world's fastest microprocessor (2X
times faster than the most common
server processors). It also has 300
percent more memory and 100
percent more bandwidth than our
previous generation mainframe.
These new capabilities lead to
tangible business results. Compared to competitive alternatives,
the z13 uses up to 90 percent less
floor space, 80 percent less energy
and 70 percent fewer labor costs.
The most important measurement, though, may be the time it
saves. The z13 is built for speed in
a mobile world where data requests
and processes quickly add up.
For example, let's take a
customer searching for an airline

smartphone worked a little bit slower?" Can you recall your manager
at work telling you, "Let's delay this project a few weeks so you have
more time to prepare?"

ticket on a smartphone. That single request can trigger up to 100
additional system interactions,
ranging from checks on schedules
and pricing to considerations for
seating preferences and alternative airports. The customer doesn't
realize these interactions are
taking place; they just want the
right ticket at the right price for
their traveling needs.
The z13 can handle these
requests and cascading processes
better than any other system.
In fact, the z13 can process 2.5
billion transactions per day-the
equivalent of 100 Cyber Mondays.
The z13 also can deliver realtime insights for the company
selling the product. It's the first
mainframe built with the capabilities to perform analytics and

transactions together, opening
new possibilities to better serve
customers and significantly
improve fraud detection.
When a customer is getting
ready to make a purchase, for
example, the business can
use these analytic capabilities
to offer additional products
tailored to the needs of that
specific customer. They also can
run real-time checks to ensure
the transaction is legitimate.
In addition, organizations
can save time and money by
not having to off-load data
from the mainframe to perform
these analytics. The cost of
moving 1 TB of data daily off
z Systems* to another system
to perform analytics can cost
more than $10 million over a
four-year period.
The cost of moving data,
though, is just a small part of
the value delivered by z13. The
greater value is providing companies with these real-time insights
so they can take informed actions
more quickly, giving them a decisive advantage over competitors.
Ultimately, this competitive
advantage is what we believe will
lead organizations to adopt the
z13. They'll welcome the savings
on space, energy and labor.
But the bigger payoff will be a
faster, more nimble organization
ready for anything the mobile
consumer brings their way.
