System z Sweeps Server Market; But Who Will Run All These New Systems?


Bookmark and Share

IBM released market data that shows the System z mainframe has kept IBM well ahead of the large server market, attaining 69.1% factory revenue share in the final quarter of 2010. This also has been the fastest quarterly revenue growth ever reported for IBM mainframes, as systems running the z/OS operating platform accounted for 11.3% of all server revenue. The question is: Are there enough skilled professionals emerging from colleges, universities, and training institutions to handle this new demand? As the latest SHARE survey of 376 employers shows, there needs to be a greater emphasis on these skills in the educational sector. We're going to revolutionize many fields."
