Turn analytics challenge into your competitive advantage

Design your IT infrastructure around data with analytics solutions from IBM

No one has to tell you about the volume, velocity and variety of data—or the analytics challenge they pose. With traditional and digital data expected to surpass 8 zettabytes by 2015 according to IDC, it is crucial to design an IT infrastructure that can manage data, and varying analytics workloads, with efficiency and resiliency—now and in the future.

IBM can help you align around information, anticipate and drive outcomes, and act with confidence to maximize analytics results. Designed specifically for deep integration and optimization with analytics software, IBM systems not only deliver peak performance, through more efficient management of both structured and unstructured data, but they can also provide an optimized, resilient and scalable solution tuned for different analytics demands.

Which means analytics deployments go the way you always expected, no matter how large your data requirements grow.

Explore the tabs below to learn how organizations are successfully adopting Smarter Analytics infrastructures.

Patterns of adoption


Align your IT infrastructure around information

Organizations are awash in data. Digital data. Traditional data.

Data from within the enterprise and far beyond. Which can make finding actionable insights a monumental task.

Meeting this challenge requires an IT infrastructure that is scalable and tuned to handle a variety of analytics needs. Aligning your organization’s infrastructure around data (instead of vice versa) provides this higher-level performance, ensuring that every decision is fueled by trusted information.

IBM offers a range of analytics solutions that scale in whatever ways best meet your needs—out, up and in—to help you reach insights faster. You will be empowered to:

  • Cost-effectively manage and store large, complex data sets
  • Handle mixed workloads of structured and unstructured data
  • Integrate and govern information with greater agility
  • Eliminate mismatched, conflicting and duplicate data
