IBM 2011 Power Symposium Points to the Future
Hosted May 10-11 at IBM’s Research Triangle Park facilities, after a one-year hiatus, the invitation-only 2011 IBM Power Symposium included a mix of IBM presenters who painted a picture of the future direction of power architectures and product demand for the full range of IBM servers and retail point-of-sale systems.
Bob Murphy, VP Integrated Supply Chain kicked off the meeting with a discussion of "Power Technology for a Smarter Planet." He pointed out that the third-phase in the transformation of IBM’s supply chain strategy is underway and is focused on "Smarter" solutions including instrumented, interconnected and intelligent systems. The key goal is the optimization of performance across complete systems.
