Avoid data movement and deploy applications across multiple cloud environments to speed business insights.

This post originally published on the IBM Journey to AI blog.

AI technologies have the power to deliver critical business insights, but maintenance and implementation can dramatically drain organizational resources. Rather than worrying about maintaining complex analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) tools, business leaders are looking to take action on the insights those technologies bring.

Today, we announce the upcoming general availability of IBM Cloud Pak for Data as a Service with IBM Cloud Satellite. IBM Cloud Pak for Data as a Service provides integrated data and AI services that simplify and deliver a unified analytics experience across distributed cloud environments. Fully managed on the IBM Cloud, the solution provides data and AI governance and is scalable to your business needs.

This unified data and AI platform integrates with IBM Cloud Satellite, a distributed cloud solution that makes it possible to launch cloud services and workloads across multiple environments. The integrated solution helps you run your data and AI workloads next to your data on clouds in various global geographies, with the initial roll-out in North America but quickly extending to other regions throughout the year.

Using IBM Cloud Pak for Data as a Service with IBM Cloud Satellite, you can eliminate the need to move data around or copy from other public clouds to get insights. Empower your team to efficiently build machine learning models in the cloud and run models in the same cloud region where your data is stored so you can have a completely seamless data analytics experience.

 

Quickly uncover value from data

Driving smarter decisions that give customers the best experience is essential to boosting revenue and growth. Businesses need to iterate quickly on the right data, and IBM Cloud Pak for Data as a Service with IBM Cloud Satellite can help speed time to insight so your organization can keep up with the pace of today’s market.

For example, during our beta release, IBM worked with a FinTech firm that helps global investment professionals deliver better outcomes. The firm was looking to use AI to turn millions of data points into actionable investment recommendations. Many of its applications and data sit on AWS while its data and AI tools are consumed as-a-Service from the IBM Cloud.

By co-locating its IBM AI workloads next to its data on AWS, the firm was able to reduce its engineered data scoring latency from 10 seconds to 1 second. This gain in efficiency sped up  time to insight and allowed applications to be more actionable and predictive. In the world of FinTech, where markets move second by second with millions of dollars at stake, reducing latency can make a highly significant difference.

Start your path forward

Watch my conversation with IDC on Thursday March 4 at 12:00pm ET to hear market and IBM perspectives on the evolution of managing data and AI services and why an as a Service approach can help you innovate and stay ahead of the competition. See what successful AI-powered recovery could look like in a post-pandemic world.

Also, in a free one-hour event on March 9, Rob Thomas and other Industry leaders, IBM experts and clients will discuss the new IBM Cloud Satellite and how to increase developer productivity and shift away from maintaining tools to providing new value to customers. Watch the broadcast on March 9.

IBM named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM, for the 14th consecutive time

3 min read - Security operations is getting more complex and inefficient with too many tools, too much data and simply too much to do. According to a study done by IBM, SOC team members are only able to handle half of the alerts that they should be reviewing in a typical workday. This potentially leads to missing the important alerts that are critical to an organization's security. Thus, choosing the right SIEM solution can be transformative for security teams, helping them manage alerts…
