IBM PERSPECTIVE
Extending IBM's Commitment
to Big Data and Analytics

S

Research shows that leaders
who utilize next-generation
applications to manage and derive
insights from big data are twice
as likely to outperform their peers
across multiple industries. To
further enable organizations' big
data and analytics capabilities,
IBM is keenly focused on evolving
systems, business applications,
and social, cloud and mobile
technologies that can not only
manage big data but also empower
our clients to take actions to make
a competitive difference.
With the IBM zEnterprise*
System, we're providing a
competitive approach to help
organizations turn information
into insight and insight into better
business outcomes. IBM business
analytics and data warehousing
solutions on zEnterprise are
designed to cost-effectively exploit
the platform's unique capabilities
for running various workloads
while delivering fast, reliable
and scalable information for
optimized business performance.
This year, we've continued
our commitment to big data,
analytics, mobile, cloud and
social business innovations

by enhancing our portfolio of
solutions that can be deployed
across the zEnterprise family. This
issue highlights many of these
offerings, providing a perspective
on the big data landscape and
how zEnterprise and DB2* V11
technologies can help simplify
that space. Couple these with the
introduction of the zEnterprise
BC12, and organizations of all
sizes can improve customer
service by exploiting the latest
capabilities of zEnterprise. These
technologies include an efficient
and flexible cloud delivery model,
embedded real-time analytics and
enterprise mobility-all
helping organizations
leverage a highly
secure and resilient
infrastructure.
The zEnterprise
System is specifically
designed to unlock
the power of big
data through
the integration
of business
intelligence and
transactional
processing to
help deliver

competitive advantages through
actionable insights. Advanced
virtualization features like
multisystem virtualization
and live guest relocation with
System z*, z/VM* and Linux*
on System z help provide an
efficient infrastructure for
deploying private clouds for
workloads that scale both
horizontally and vertically at
a low total cost of ownership.
And, with the IBM zEnterprise
System's high level of security,
clients can trust it to protect
their most valuable information,
thus helping reduce
organizational and
reputational risk.
In this issue
of IBM Systems
Magazine,
Mainframe
edition, learn
more about how
the zEnterprise
System is driving
key big data
and analytic
innovations for
clients throughout
the world.
