IBM rarely, if ever publicly, talks about the future of IBM Z. When IBM's sales managers have a oneon-one client conversation (under NDA), they might inform the customer about the next processor, but the company rarely talks about the mid- to long-term future publicly. An obvious reason for this is not to disrupt sales, but at the same time, IBM believes that it is sometimes working on problems that the market might not know it has yet. IBM felt that it was doing a disservice to its current and future customers by not being more open, which is why Tarun Chopra, director, Product Management for IBM Systems, and Ross Mauri, general manager, IBM Z, agreed to talk to IDC about the future of IBM Z. In these conversations, IBM was not putting a date on any of the topics it was willing to discuss. But the company was willing to talk about where it is investing R&D dollars and skills.

For companies and buyers alike, customer service has traditionally been used as a troubleshooting tool. Forrester found that companies believe that nearly 50% of all buyers still view customer service as a post-purchase resource, rather than a purchasing aid, and in response, companies have positioned their customer service capabilities to match that expectation. However, Forrester conducted a custom survey of 247 companies and found that this reactive, postpurchase-only customer service mindset can result in missed sales opportunities and contributes to greater purchase dissatisfaction.

The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.
