IBM Adds To PureSystems Partner Ranks, Expands Financing Options


OneTree Solutions, a Luxembourg-based ISV, is leveraging the PureSystems "patterns of expertise" automated configuration and management capabilities. With those features OneTree "was able to slash deployment of our PriceLenz software from three weeks to eight minutes," Managing Director Denis Avrilionis said in a statement. "PureSystems is the most advanced integrated cloud solution in the market."

On the financing side, IBM is offering customers the ability to lease the entire cost of a PureSystems installation, including hardware and software. Customers can defer their first payment for 90 days. And, IBM's Global Asset Recovery Services are buying back some aging servers, including those made by competitors Oracle and Hewlett-Packard, for customers upgrading to PureSystems.

IBM said those options help customers avoid paying cash upfront and lower their total cost-of-ownership.
