IBM BigInsights on Cloud Basic Plan
IBM BigInsights on Cloud Basic Plan provides Apache Spark and Hadoop clusters within minutes to accelerate developing and deploying applications which you can scale to meet the toughest of workloads. Choose the components you need, such as Spark, Hive and Hbase, all without Hadoop management headaches.
Apache Spark was developed for use with Hadoop, and does not have a data store. The two big data frameworks are complementary, and work together very effectively as a big data system. Hadoop MapReduce is used for batch processing of data stored in HDFS for fast and reliable analysis, whereas Apache Spark is used for data streaming and in-memory distributed processing for faster real-time analysis.
The Open Data Platform (ODPi) is a shared industry effort focused on promoting and advancing the state of Apache Hadoop for the enterprise. The ODPi is currently made up of 17 (and growing) of the leading big data companies in the world — representing all points in the customer lifecycle.
Our big data experts are unbeatable technology partners who have deep Hadoop expertise, are accessible 24/7, and who can support any of your needs – from pay-as-you-grow to maturing a team’s analytics capabilities.
International banks typically have complex on-premise analytics environments that are interdependent on multiple data marts, which become increasingly expensive and difficult to manage.
By transitioning to IBM BigInsights on Cloud, one of our financial services customers put their data directly into a data lake. Users from different areas of the business could then access and query data directly, and gain agility, speed and efficiency.
Build analytics — fast
Flexibility for data-sensitive projects
Pharmaceutical companies are sometimes required to perform analysis on medical records; however, disparate systems and privacy concerns prevent them from having an on-premise analytics environment.
We helped one customer build an economic model for a new drug treatment by provisioning a BigInsights cluster in less than 48 hours.
Mitigate social media risk
Mine for risk in social sentiment analysis
Developing and operationalizing a capability to monitor risk from poor employee behavior or negative exposure from inappropriate customer communication is now required for both small businesses and corporations.
Getting quick insights from social media feeds to validate sentiment can be easily deployed on IBM BigInsights on Cloud via built-in enhanced analytics — without the cost, complexity and risk of managing the infrastructure.
Analyze your data where it resides — in the cloud — with a fully managed columnar data warehouse service. Leverage in-database predictive analytics and massively parallel processing (MPP) to do more with your data.
