In this whitepaper IDC writes:
"Most enterprise datacenters are so cluttered with individually constructed servers, including database servers, that staff time is largely taken up with just the maintenance of these systems. As a result, IT service to business users suffers, and the agility of the enterprise suffers. Integrated systems represent an antidote to this problem. By dramatically reducing the amount of setup and maintenance time for the applications and databases they support, integrated systems enable the technical staff to spend more of their time supporting users and enabling the enterprise to thrive.
IBM PureData System for Transactions is an excellent example of such an integrated system. It not only includes optimal components from a single vendor for simplicity in support and meets all the requirements of such an integrated system, but also goes beyond the requirements by providing rich tuning capabilities through patterns."
