2012 Pulse Poll results are in

Pulse 2012 in Sydney is the largest conference IBM runs in Australia and New Zealand. Many people enjoyed the huge breadth and depth of sessions, engaged with subject matter experts, listened to case studies and hearing new points of view from expert panellists.

Keeping up to date with the pulse of our customers, clients, business partners and extended peers is one of our key objectives of Pulse, with many attendees participating in our anonymous onsite poll.

With results now in, understand how your peers are responding to changes in their industry and adapting new technology solutions.

55% of respondents for the 2012 Pulse Poll indicated that security frameworks were the essential element for successful cloud computing! Read the following whitepaper to understand more about how user provisioning and access control can protect users and data in cloud deployments.

Old data was the number one storage challenge highlighted by Pulse Poll respondents.  Storing stuff that hasn't been used, read or modified in a long time just takes up space and consumes time to manage. IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center (TPC) can help you identify what's old and all those duplicate files. TPC is a clear SRM leader, designed to help you optimise the storage infrastructure you already have.

The most popular workload for cloud (public private or hybrid), selected by Pulse ANZ attendees , was mobile solutions. Those mobile apps that deliver real-time information direct to customers and partners are potentially your next killer app, helping organisations like yours gain advantage in a tight marketplace. Consider how important a high performing network is in delivering that strategic application or service. Read the whitepaper and understand how you can boost the business value of your network when deploying cloud solutions.
