This solution combines the predictive analytics power of IBM SPSS Modeler and IBM Decision Management with the security, high availability and reliability of the System z platform, providing you with a unified platform so you can increase the impact of your analytics investment.
SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services includes capabilities to help you:
- Collaborate so you can develop and implement analytics across the enterprise.
- Automate so you can construct flexible analytical processes that can be can be deployed throughout your operations – ensuring consistent results.
- Deploy by embedding analytic results in front-line business processes while integrating with your existing infrastructure with standard programming tools and interfaces.
- Store analytical assets in a central repository, making it easier to locate them, share with others, reuse models and other assets and standardize best practices.
- Protect the business by controlling access to analytical assets and by using version control to ensure that the right copies are being used in production processes.
- Publish information easily from within analytic tools – developing custom interfaces for running those processes and giving analytical power to business users to control how they see and use analytics.
- Use a visual interface to construct flexible, analytical processes – including those that involve multiple steps and tools – that deliver consistent results.
- Run jobs on demand, or on a set schedule, or when triggered by other events – orchestrating complex jobs across multiple systems and applications through event notification.
- Govern the environment in which the analytical processes occur, thereby increasing confidence in results.
- Evaluate models using a champion/challenger approach and automate the evaluation process to ensure relevant results.
- Deliver analytical results as customer interactions are occurring through integration with business user systems – combining information gathered during the interaction with historical data to determine the next best action.
- Incorporate features that ensure scalability, reliability and security.
- Integrate with existing authentication systems for authentication and single sign-on capabilities.
- Support application server clustering and virtualization for more effective use of resources.
