There were a number of systems-related announcements made at the InterConnect conference earlier this week.  I wanted to call out a few in particular related to big data and analytics.

These advancements, which are all designed to help businesses make real-time decisions, get closer to their customers, and give employees the information they need to solve problems and progress opportunities, include:

  • Updates for the IBM PureData System for Analytics and IBM PureData System for Hadoop, which helps businesses accelerate analytics on big data, achieving results up to 8x faster than custom-built applications.
  • The new IBM BLU Acceleration Solution - Power Systems Edition, which utilizes POWER7+ technology for faster reporting and analytics
  • IBM Application Ready Solutions for Technical Computing and enhancements to the IBM Platform Computing family, which simplify infrastructure setup, management and high performance application acceleration, helping to accelerate time to value while also reducing costs.
