To IBM Power
Since 2009, over 1,000 clients have moved business to IBM Power Systems™
from Oracle/Sun. Some were swayed by the up to 60% drop in IT costs. Others
by the 3x per core performance (per both TPC-C and SAP SD benchmarks).
And some by both. Though all saw the strong business case for moving. We’d
welcome the opportunity to show how IBM could help your organization, too.
