SoftLayer

The latest wave of technologies are potential game-changers, triggering real business transformations like never before. This new IT architecture is called “SMAC,” (for Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud). A consumer technology model, that’s transforming the way organisations conduct their business.
Fittingly, as global leaders in technology, IBM has been vocal in it’s belief that businesses must embrace the “fifth wave of corporate IT” enabled by the SMAC stack - and has been at the fore-front of the movement advocating its widespread adoption. Because competitive advantage, market leadership, and profitable growth are at stake.
As a part of this larger SMAC-centred growth agenda (and to capture a significant slice of the lucrative and fast-growing web-centric SMB segment), IBM acquired one of the world’s leading Cloud (IaaS) players – SoftLayer – which, along with Amazon, has been dominating this particular segment of the market.
Explore this micro-site…
…not just for the latest SMAC-related news, trends, analyses, and interviews featuring senior business and technology decision-makers, influencers and opinion-leaders - with specific focus on Cloud Computing…
…but also for the nuggets of branded content around the IBM-SoftLayer Cloud offering, highlighting the key differential advantages they provide to small businesses with big ambitions (and to large enterprises too).
