Real time analytics

Compete by driving real-time high quality insights

Why locate analytics exactly where your data resides?

Your competition is the last, best experience your client had. To differentiate yourself you must know how each individual has been interacting with you in real-time - right down to the split second. Generating instantaneous business insights requires co-location of analysis and operations, transforming your systems of record into systems of insight.

IBM z Systems, optimised for real-time analytics, is a platform designed for availability, tuned for flexibility and engineered for the highest levels of security - when both operations and analytics are mission-critical.
