Cloud-based Project DataWorks aims to make data accessible, organized

DataWorks GraphIncreasingly, data is a form of currency in business. Not just the data itself, but the ability to find just the right piece of information at just the right time.

As organizations amass more and more data reaching into petabyte sizes, it can sometimes become diffuse, which can make it hard for someone to quickly find exactly the right key to unlock a barrier to progress.

To solve that challenge, IBM unveiled Project DataWorks last week, a cloud-based data organization catalog which puts all of a company’s data in one easy-to-access, intuitive dashboard. Here’s how TechCrunch describes Project DataWorks:

With natural language search, users can pull up specific data sets from those catalogs much more quickly than with traditional methods. DataWorks also touts data ingestion at speeds of 50 to 100s of Gbps.

The tool is available through the IBM Bluemix platform and uses Watson cognitive technology to raise its speed and usability.

In an interview with PCWorld, Derek Scholette, general manager of cloud data services for IBM Analytics, explained: “Analytics is no longer something in isolation for IT to solve. In the world we’re entering, it’s a team sport where data professionals all want to be able to operate on a platform that lets them collaborate securely in a governed manner.”

Project DataWorks is open to enterprise customers but it’s also open to small businesses. It’s currently available as a pay-as-you-go service.
