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new high-powered servers with outdated compilers that limit the servers’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.
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
