That’s why I wanted to
call attention to an announcement made by IBM today. The company unveiled a new
experiential exhibit at INNOVENTIONS
at Epcot at the Walt Disney

possibilities of building a smarter planet. The exhibit is powered by a new
Smarter Data Center, providing a real-life demonstration of optimized computing
that reduces energy costs by up to 25 percent.
