IBM prepares Tech Spectacular for GITEX 2002
IBM will be presenting its e-business technologies in live demonstrations during GITEX Dubai this year. It will also be giving glimpses of some of the innovations from its research laboratories.
IBM will be launching a number of new products at GITEX, with the focus on demonstrating how real people benefit from e-business, according to a company press release. The stand this year will be divided into five zones: eBusiness Infrastructure Hardware, Software, Services, Solutions, and Innovations (the technology still emerging from IBM’s labs around the world).
A factor that will be of most interest for IT managers in today’s increasingly standards-based technology world will be IBM’s multi-platform openness, with solutions for Windows, AIX, Linux, OS/400. There will be a number of new products from the hardware and software divisions of IBM, including the eServer p630, the industry’s most powerful entry-level UNIX server with IBM’s uniquely scaleable and reliable mainframe-derived technology.
There will also be demonstrations of the latest IBM software products, from the WebSphere application services platform, and from the Lotus collaboration and messaging technology, as well as the latest generation of IBM’s market-leading database, DB2 version 8. The stand will also showcase a full range of IBM’s notebook and desktop PC technologies.
A strong theme running though IBM’s offerings this year will be advanced hardware and software solutions based on open standards for the Linux platform.
IBM develops and manufactures information technologies, including computer systems, software—with the widest range of middleware and operating systems for all types of computing platforms—networking systems, storage devices and microelectronics.
Joining IBM on its stand will be its Business Partner, Gulf Business Machines (GBM), as well as solution partners from across the Middle East region. — (menareport.com)
