IBM today announced the launch of z13 mainframe to help meet the expectations of consumers for speed and safety for trillions of transactions in the mobile economy.
 
The z13 system culminates a $1 billion investment and exploits innovation of more than 500 new patents, including cryptographic encryption technologies that enable more security features for mobile initiated transactions. These servers will provide real-time encryption on all mobile transactions, targeting e-commerce and m-commerce firms in India.
 
"In a booming market like India where businesses need immediacy and security, there was a need of a comprehensive computing infrastructure for the mobile generation and the new app economy which could redefine digital business' said Viswanath Ramaswamy, Country Leader - Server Solutions (POWER & Mainframe), IBM India.
 
Keeping in mind the estimated growth of mobile transactions to 40 trillion per day by 2025, z13 is capable in processing 2.5 billion transactions a day. It speeds real-time encryption of mobile transactions to help protect the transaction data and ensure response times consistent with a positive customer experience. The embedded analytics providing real-time insights on all transactions can help detect fraud on real time basis.
 
The rapid growth of mobile applications has created consumers who expect mobile transactions to be fast and seamless - regardless of which mobile payment platform, retailer, or financial organization is providing the service. This launch complements IBM's ongoing investments to help clients drive mobile innovation across the enterprise.
 
"Every time a consumer makes a purchase or hits refresh on a smart phone, it can create a cascade of events on the back end of the computing environment. Consumers expect fast, easy and secure mobile transactions. The implication for business is the creation of a secure, high performance infrastructure with sophisticated analytics. The z13 is designed to handle billions of transactions for the mobile economy. Only the IBM mainframe can put the power of the world's most secure datacenters in the palm of your hand," said Ramaswamy.
