Announcing actionable insights — across all data — on one system

New zEnterprise offerings for analytics and big data

Real time analytics, delivering business insight at the point of impact, is a growing requirement. How can organisations drowning in data, use this data, derive business value and drive top line revenue growth? Many organisations are moving their analytic functions to where their transaction processes reside. For the majority of the world’s leading businesses, the answer is System z.

Accelerate insight at the point of transaction with HTAP

Transform your IT infrastructure and empower innovation with Hybrid Transaction Analytical Processing (HTAP). Greater situational awareness and improved business agility provides the opportunity to rethink analytics, housed on System z, as an integral part of the business process – rather than a separate activity.

Perform advanced, real-time analysis of business data in the context of business operations:
