Author: Susan G. Middleton
Research Director, Technology Financing Strategies

Abstract

This IDC Market Note reviews IBM's announcement of the new z14 series. On July 17, IBM introduced its latest generation of the z series. IBM has reenergized the platform by integrating pervasive encryption into the system and improving software pricing.

"As the industry transforms from a 3rd Platform focus to digital transformation, IBM's investment in these new areas will help it mitigate future customer erosion and maybe attract new customer types to the z platform." — Susan G. Middleton, research director, IDC's Technology Financing Strategies
