IBM will launch preconfigured 'building blocks' for technology infrastructure to speed up deployments and cut costs.

The effort, which comes out of IBM's global technology services unit, aims to take the reusable components and configurations the company uses internally and bring them to enterprises.

According to IBM, these building blocks will include engineered processes, software, research and hardware into prefab modules. Services customers can either pick stand-alone server configurations or just choose a preconfigured server build.
