International banks typically have complex analytics on-premises environments that are interdependent on multiple data marts, which becomes increasingly expensive and complex to manage.
By transitioning to BigInsights on Cloud, one of our financial services customers put their data directly into a data lake, allowing users from different areas of the business to access and query data directly, and prepare for future agility, speed and efficiency.
Building 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-premises analytical environment.
We helped one customer build an economic model for a new drug treatment by provisioning a BigInsights cluster in less than 48 hours. The customer could then quickly delve into the project and execute their project dramatically faster.
Mitigating risk — effectively
Mining 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.
