BVQ adds business value


Storage systems have the main task to store data. SVC and Storwize have many further additional functions, such as EasyTier, mirrors, thin provisioning, and many more. All these functions are technical in nature, they support no typical business processes. BVQ can be extended with packages that support requirements such as accounting or service level management.
