“ Businesses today need to make better, faster decisions based on reality rather than on assumptions, and that means taking control of enormous volumes of data. The combination of DB2 Analytics Accelerator, Cognos BI and SPSS on the System z platform gives us that control and opens up a whole different way of doing things. ”
Larry Yarter, Chief Architect, IBM Business Analytics Competency Center
