 “This will help channel partners further diversify their portfolios and drive margin,” he said. “Everyone talks about being data-driven, but the reality is most organizations still aren’t. The pandemic has created a situation that if you’re not digital, you can’t transact business. Having new systems specifically designed for big data and AI apps that bring more automation is valuable. It gives channel partners another workload to target.”- Dave Vellante, Wikibon (Channel Futures)
"Storage technology no longer can force customers to move data to the device or cloud service,” he said. “Instead, a leading storage portfolio must be able to support data services where the data is created and used. IBM’s dramatically simplified storage portfolio does a good job of that.”

By optimizing storage to work well with AI, businesses can extract more value out of their data. And as data grows exponentially, companies are rapidly turning to AI to gain insight into their data. Their strategy of innovating on multiple lines, including both data collection and analysis, and continuing to adjust along the way makes a lot of sense." - Scott Sinclair, ESG (IT Pro Today)
