An information infrastructure is comprised of software, servers, storage, and networks, integrated and optimized to deliver timely, secure, and trusted information throughout the organization and to its clients and partners.

With the explosive growth in data and information—coupled with demands for projects with rapid ROI—IT infrastructures and storage administrators are reaching a breaking point. IBM® can help with the changes needed to manage information availability, security, and regulatory and compliance requirements on a tighter budget.
