Why IBM Could Totally Save the Universe

Why IBM Could Totally Save the Universe
Microserve is fortunate to work with many different world-class organizations allowing us to bring the best IT services to our clients. Each one of our partners has its own particular strengths and areas of focus, and IBM is no exception – with well over a century of experience in the IT industry (which, admittedly, wasn’t all that developed in 1896, when IBM was first founded under the name “Tabulating Machine Company”), it’s without question one of the giants in the field.

But if you take a look at IBM’s storied history and current capabilities, you’ll see why it’s really not all that much of a stretch to compare the tech giant to a superhero. As they explain on their own site, “Today’s cloud infrastructure needs to be secure, agile and able to quickly scale for future growth. That’s the kind of infrastructure made with IBM: up to 61% reduction in server downtime; up to 42% increase in IT productivity; up to 73% increase in problem resolution.”

If that’s not a superhero-worthy achievement, then we don’t know what is!

But that’s not the only thing that gives IBM its superpowers. Let’s take a look at a few of the ways that IBM has helped to make great things happen for the entire universe – and can do the same for your company.

1. IBM can skyrocket your business all the way to the moon.

When you’re looking for IT solutions to help grow your business, who wouldn’t go with a company trusted by NASA to help keep its astronauts safe and on track? Back during the Apollo and Mercury missions, IBM played a pivotal role in putting the first man on the moon – and that using computers with only 4K of RAM! With today’s IT capabilities, just imagine what they could do for your company…

2. IBM will keep your business ahead of the tech curve.

You think Apple was the first big innovator in the smartphone space? Think again. IBM invented the very first smartphone back in 1994, called the Simon Personal Communicator, which incorporated the ability to send both emails and faxes! And, oh yeah, there’s a small list of other little inventions credited to their name, as well – you know, just minor things like floppy disks, hard disk drives, the magnetic stripe, RAM, UPC bar codes, and the world’s first disk storage system, known as RAMAC. Yeah, just that. So if you’re worried about keeping abreast of the latest tech – don’t be. IBM has got you covered.

3. IBM can even help your company go green in ways you never imagined.

Making IT business environmentally friendly is trendy now, but IBM was green before it was cool, with their Blue Initiative in 1971. This innovative company policy put environmental concerns front and center for IBM, and it’s been a priority for them ever since. So if you’re looking for ways to make your business green, look no further.

Now here’s the best part of all of this saving-the-universe stuff – we here at Microserve are right there in the middle of all the action!
