IBM has unveiled the new Express Advantage offerings, which include hardware, software, and services specifically developed for midsized businesses.
The portfolio of offerings provides IBM’s business partner ecosystem with a range of applications to deliver services for its customers.
IBM has launched a new software offering that helps midsize companies deliver better quality software, improve operational efficiency and lower risk. IBM Rational Quality Manager Express is a centralized web-based test management software built on IBM’s Jazz technology. The software provides a Web 2.0 collaborative, customizable environment for test planning, construction, deployment and execution. It also enables workflow control and quantifiable metrics for project tracking and decision-making to ensure that the business objectives and outcomes of a software release have been met. A key benefit of the software is that it provides a central hub for business-driven software-quality delivery.
Marc Dupaquier, general manager for global midmarket at IBM, said: IBM’s hardware, software and services offerings for the midmarket provide business partners with cost-effective solutions to help streamline business processes, gain information insights, employ new business models and secure more reliable access to critical resources. The addition of Rational Quality Manager Express to the Express Advantage portfolio will enable them to significantly increase their operational efficiencies, employee productivity, customer service and competitive advantage to support growth.
