|IBM Storage Services Maintains Worldwide Lead in Market Share
According to Top Analyst Firm|
ARMONK, NY - IBM® today announced that it continues to lead
in the 2004 storage services marketplace based on revenue throughout Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific and Japan,
according to a recent Gartner annual report on the worldwide storage services segment(1). IBM maintains its
leadership position from the previous year in the storage service marketplace which was, as stated by Gartner,
measured to be worth more than $22 billion in 2004 and represents as much as a $30 billion opportunity by 2008.
The compounding deluge of data, growing complexity of storage technology, escalating IT management costs, and
increasing strain on internal resources, are driving the need for more efficient and cost-effective ways to maximize
and manage server and storage infrastructures. IBM storage services help clients dramatically reduce complexity by
assisting them with their storage management needs, providing them with the ability to concentrate on primary
business goals by helping them to meet data performance and availability requirements on an as-needed basis.
"Dealing with the ever-increasing data avalanche is one of the most important challenges businesses
are faced with today. IBM customers are leveraging our information on demand technology and storage services to help
them manage the flood of information," said Sergei Varbanov, storage services global offering executive, IBM Global
Services. "Our storage services help enable, integrate, analyze, optimize and manage on demand business
infrastructures -- increasing the business value of IT for our customers and delivering the right information at the
IBM storage services include the combined power of IBM Global Services, IBM Systems
and Technology Group, IBM Tivoli software, and IBM Research providing customers with a comprehensive set of storage
solutions including business continuity and recovery services, infrastructure and systems management services,
networking services, technical support and IT education services.
According to Gartner, IBM is
projected to maintain marketplace leadership as one of the top storage service vendors through 2008.
Information on Demand
The desire by businesses to access, manage, deliver and secure information more
efficiently is driving rapid change in the IT marketplace. Traditional low-tech, hardware-only approaches by
proprietary vendors are meeting with resistance as companies grappling with new government mandates and business
demands strive to capture and integrate information in a more seamless, real-time fashion across the enterprise.
IBM's information on demand approach combines deep business insight with open standards, advanced storage systems,
and sophisticated software for information, security and IT system management to create cost effective and flexible
information infrastructures. Regardless of industry, IBM helps companies transform data into insight to enable
information on demand.
