Transform business with a big data and analytics infrastructure for new levels of insight at the point of impact
With the dramatic growth of social, mobile and machine-based data, many organisations are overwhelmed with the volume of information flooding in. Data has the power to transform business decisions, enhance customer relationships, and create new opportunities – but only if you can trust and make sense of it.
IBM delivers a big data and analytics infrastructure with data mining, business intelligence and data warehousing capabilities. So you can share access more securely, speed decision making in real time, and leverage insight for competitive advantage.
Storage for big data
Why big data must become a first-class citizen
IBM’s Chris Algozzine and Ovum Principal Analyst Tony Baer make a case for a comprehensive data storage strategy to address new workload and integration challenges.
Design an IBM big data solution that helps:
Enable shared, security rich access to data
Your organization needs visibility to all relevant information no matter what it is or where it resides. When your infrastructure aligns with big data goals, decision makers can collaborate to solve problems and grow opportunities.
IBM offers a range of big data and analytics solutions that easily scale to provide secure, shared access. For example:
Why access matters for big data and analytics
Data comes from different sources and in various formats – but it’s only useful if you can get it.
You need the right IT infrastructure to access information in context and derive insights.
For optimal access, your IT infrastructure needs to have fast and efficient data storage.
IT infrastructure needs to be scalable, and use data tiering and compression for best access.
Gain new levels of understanding
To stay ahead of the unexpected, you need to build analytics intelligence into operational transactions. With these insights, you can obtain new levels of customer intimacy, differentiate your business and optimize real business outcomes.
IBM can help you model trends and simulate scenarios, predict potential threats and opportunities, and monitor your business performance. We offer:
- IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator for z/OS integrates IBM Netezza and zEnterprise technologies to deliver rapid results for complex, data-intensive queries
- IBM Data Engine for Analytics – Power Systems Edition, customizable with integrated software, is optimized for big data and analytics workloads, with flexible storage and compute resources
Why speed matters for big data and analytics
Even the most advanced analytics doesn’t do any good if it takes forever to get insights.
For optimal speed, your infrastructure must have low latency capabilities.
Advanced analytics that are closer to the systems of record can deliver faster insights.
The ability to scale up, in and out rapidly for optimal speed is enabled by storage.
Analytics moves from the back-office to the front-office
Acting swiftly to make critical decisions requires an IT infrastructure that is resilient, responsive to changing demands, and able to deliver real-time insights.
IBM can help you choose a big data infrastructure that maximizes the availability of information so you can quickly identify opportunities and act with confidence. Solutions include:
- IBM BLU Acceleration Solution – Power Systems Edition provides a high performance, highly resilient and secure data warehouse infrastructure for faster insights from analytics reporting
- The IBM FlashSystem family delivers extreme performance so you can get to big data when you need it
Why availability matters for big data and analytics
Big data is useful only if insights are available to the people and processes that require them.
Big data and analytics empower employees if insight is available where they need it.
The right IT infrastructure helps you analyze data real time to make smarter decisions.
You need the right IT infrastructure to consistently deliver optimal availability.
