Did you know that the compiler you use can impact whether or not you achieve optimal performance from all parts of your systems. Organizations often overlook the importance of compilers, often running new high-powered servers with outdated compilers that limit the servers’ potential. Or failing to update compilers that can improve the efficiency of existing hardware investments as more advanced versions are released. In practical terms,this translates into greater power consumption, slower response times,numerous administrative challenges—and higher costs.
The value of compilers is twofold. First, compilers can cost-effectively help optimize the return on investment (ROI) of the hardware they run on. Second, they can provide value in diagnosing problems, analyzing the codebases they consume, helping to prevent failures, increasing productivity and lowering application development and maintenance costs. Compilers are often the most inexpensive layer in the software stack—yet they are also powerful levers to supercharge the hardware and software on which you run your business.Read Using Rational compilers for IBM Power (AIX and Linux) and learn about IBM compiler products and technology on IBM Power Systems running AIX and Linux operating environments,and how IBM compilation technology can help you optimize your investment in information technology.
