IBM has opened an indigenous dynamic infrastructure lab at Pune by using the skill-base from its India workforce. The lab, located at the IBM Software Lab showcases technologies to address clients business challenges and brings more intelligence, automation, integration, and efficiencies to the digital and physical worlds.  As a result, it will enable businesses and governments better respond to and manage challenges presented by today’s globally integrated planet.

The lab aims to help organizations deliver the visibility, control and automation needed to address quality service, manage risk and compliance besides maximizing return on investments, and accelerate business growth.

Ponani Gopalakrishnan, vice president, IBM India Software Lab said, It is time to start thinking differently about infrastructure and in this smarter world, we need our assets to propel us forward, not hold us back. A dynamic infrastructure transforms physical and digital assets into higher valued services and leverages new technologies and strategies to reduce costs manage risk and deliver superior business and IT services with agility and speed.

IBM Software Labs in India supports a heterogeneous environment and hence is very similar to a typical growing organization s IT infrastructure. Using energy monitoring systems along with advanced Virtualization and automated management, IBM is looking to increase operational efficiency by over 20% and in turn increase its green footprint.

In today s challenging business environments, customers see the value that IBM brings to the table. The Dynamic Infrastructure Lab will help clients reuse existing capital and increase optimization of their assets by better monitoring their infrastructure and increase operational efficiency, said Rekha D. Garapati, Director of IBM India Software Labs.

Global connectivity is driving increasingly complex supply chains, ultra-empowered consumers, and making issues such as governance and compliance, managing risk, and fending off security threats increasingly difficult and complex.  And, with one-third of the world’s population on the Internet by 2011, four billion mobile web subscribers today, and the staggering amount of data and intelligence being driven by the rapid proliferation of smart sensors, RFID tags, and intelligence being built into everything from pets to power grids, the world’s infrastructure is at a breaking point.
