IBM’s New Moves in Big Data: Acceleration, Optimization, and an Open Source Alternative

IBM Almaden Labs, San Jose, CA, April 2, 2013
In a major, multi-faceted announcement, IBM announced yesterday that it will soon deliver “speed-of-thought” analytics using DB2 “BLU” acceleration, improvements in its BigInsights and Stream products, and a tuned-for-Hadoop PureData System. IBM also announced time series improvements in Informix database line. What do all of these announcements mean?

From a big picture perspective, IBM is doing the following:
  • Dramatically accelerating the performance of its analytics products;
  • Simplifying the deployment and operations of analytics systems (turnkey analytics systems combined with usability improvements in software);
  • Creating an “enterprise-class” alternative to open source Hadoop offerings;
  • Differentiating itself in the smart meter and sensor data analysis markets; and,
  • Increasing competitive pressure on Oracle and Teradata in the database and analytics markets.
