Why adopt an open source and unified analytics platform?

An open and unified analytics platform reduces risk and protects your investment.

The IBM Analytics platform easily incorporates and analyzes data from open source, external sources and internal IBM and non-IBM systems. It includes premium offerings and services built on open-source Apache™ Hadoop®, delivering extra value without proprietary lock-in.

IBM participates in the ODPi, building on standard Hadoop interfaces so you can easily add capabilities from multiple sources.
