IBM announced new software to provide clients with a sophisticated way to tame the data deluge and speed up business processes, making it easier for decision makers to gain insights from data. Based on innovations from IBM labs, the new software continuously accesses, compresses, and analyzes data, freeing up IT staff to work on higher value tasks such as big data and business analytics.
New Software Helps Clients Find Answers Up to 10 Times Faster and Free Up Storage
- Big data integration and real-time data analysis provides faster insights from unstructured data, such as social networking information or text from mobile devices. Insights from Hadoop-based systems are now easily integrated with real-time analysis of structured data in the warehouse to enable better and faster business decisions.
- Speed up business processes and lower data management costs — Adaptive Compression and Multi-Temperature Data Management instantly compresses data to make it easier for business applications to use it and place into the most effective storage. Compression speeds up the flow and better manages big data for use by analytics applications. The new software automatically assesses how frequently data is needed and moves it to cost effective storage based on how “hot” or “cold” it is.
- Look into the past and future to improve decision making — Time Travel Query enables easier access to data at any point in time. For example, an online travel agency can automatically detect inconsistencies in itineraries such as a hotel booked in Rome for eight days while a car is reserved in New York City for three of those days. Previously, database administrators and application developers had to write complex code to uncover this relationship.
