IBM to introduce mainframe processor for CRM and ERP

IBM is adding a specialised, high-speed data processor to its z9 mainframes to accelerate processing speeds when dealing with data intensive business applications.

The processor is optimised to support customer relationship management systems, as well enterprise resource planning and business intelligence applications.

The System z9 Integrated Information Processor or “zIIP” platform is geared to work closely with IBM's DB2 database on z9 mainframes.

Mainframe users will be able to upgrade to zIIP for around £75,000, with no software charges associated with the upgrade.

In 2004, IBM introduced the zAAP processor for speeding up Linux workloads.

The zIIP processor will be available before the end of the year, said IBM.
