Data science for all: it’s a whole new game

Get ready to discover keen data-science insights from noted statistician Nate Silver and other experts, captured in Data Science for All: It’s a Whole New Game, a fascinating IBM web broadcast.

Why analytics for JSON?

As a developer, effective use of data drives your best decisions and empowers your organization through applications. Open source tools like Apache® Spark™ help developers gain quick insights from data in web, mobile and IoT apps, enabling large-scale analysis of JSON without manual data preparation or transformation. Developers can use Spark and Notebook technology to visualize and communicate data analysis findings to broad audiences within their organization.

IBM Cloudant – open for analytics

Your application’s data layer contains invaluable insights about your users. That’s why application data can’t be your organization’s best kept secret — it should be open for exploration and visualization by any team that needs it.

IBM Cloudant, the always-on data layer for web, mobile and IoT apps, is equipped with pre-built connectors to popular analytics tools like Apache Spark and IBM Db2 Warehouse on Cloud, enabling developers and data-science teams to explore JSON data and uncover business insights with ease.

Conduct in-memory analysis of Cloudant JSON data

Analyze Cloudant JSON data in a Python or Scala Notebook application using IBM Analytics for Apache Spark. Spark’s data processing engine runs entirely in memory, so you can load, integrate, transform and analyze massive datasets faster than ever before.

Apply enterprise-scale data science to Cloudant JSON with open source tools

Explore Cloudant JSON with data cleaning and transformation, numerical simulation, statistical modeling, machine learning and more using IBM Data Science Experience. Rapidly implement the best open source tools, including Spark and RStudio, to activate insights from your JSON data.

Bridge SQL/NoSQL data silos with Cloudant and IBM Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

Use Cloudant’s Schema Discovery Process (SDP) to automatically translate semi-structured JSON data from web, mobile and IoT apps into SQL-compatible records in an IBM Db2 Warehouse on Cloud data warehouse.
