IBM on Tuesday unveiled its Integrated Analytics System, a unified data system that enables customers to deploy advanced analytics capabilities across private, public or hybrid cloud environments.
It supports a wide range of data types and platforms, including the IBM Db2 Warehouse On Cloud Hadoop and IBM BigSQL. It’s built with the IBM common SQL engine, so users can easily move workloads to public or private cloud environments. And with the IBM Data Science Experience and Apache Spark embedded on the system, machine learning processing is dramatically simplified. All of this cuts down on the time and money spent on steps like moving data, data cleansing and data discovery, explained Rob Thomas, general manager of IBM Analytics.
