Overview

Top rule

IBM Cloud Pak for Data 4.0 is an integrated data and AI platform that enables organizations to collect, organize, and analyze data. A data fabric that consists of an architecture and set of data services and based on a foundation of open-source technologies and support for multicloud environments, IBM Cloud Pak for Data helps organizations modernize their business and accelerate digital transformation.

Enhancements in IBM Cloud Pak for Data 4.0 include:

  • Red Hat OpenShift Operator support for lifecycle management that enables robust DevOps lifecycle.
  • Tighter integration of IBM Watson OpenScale™ with Watson Studio to enable a unified experience and a full-process AI lifecycle.
  • Additional access for Watson Studio users to graphical modeling and optimization capabilities.
  • Federated Learning enhancements, featuring the addition of quorum management and early termination to provide fine-grained control. Federated Learning supports more current versions of machine learning libraries, including TensorFlow and PyTorch.
  • AutoAI Time Series as a new tech preview feature. It enables users to automate the processes of analyzing and forecasting time series data that is commonly seen in many industries.
  • Enhanced Watson Knowledge Catalog capabilities, including the use of Knowledge Accelerators reference data sets to automatically improve data discovery accuracy.
  • AutoSQL universal query engine that automates how you access, update and unify data across any source or type (clouds, warehouses, lakes, and so on) without the need for data movement or replication. With intelligent performance optimizations, petabyte scale, and visual query building experiences, it abstracts the complexity of multiple query engines to provide simplified self-service data across an organization.

New IBM service additions to Cloud Pak for Data base offering:

In Cloud Pak for Data 4.0, SPSS Modeler, Decision Optimization, and Hadoop Execution Engine services are now included as part of the base offering. These capabilities complement Watson Studio services already part of the base offering and enable additional users, such as business analysts and citizen data scientists, to participate in building AI solutions. It enables additional advanced capabilities, such as optimization and Hadoop connectivity.

IBM Match 360 with Watson is a new service in Cloud Pak for Data. Match 360 provides a machine learning-based, easy-to-use, quick experience for self-service entity resolution. It is a no-code service providing the ability for non-developers to plug it into their data prep routine to match and link person and organization data to create that complete version of the truth, helping to improve overall data quality. The sources of these records could come from anywhere, including existing operational Master Data Management systems, or transactional or clickstream data. If there is enough identifiable information in the source data, Match 360 can link that data together.

This service is targeted for data scientists and business analysts who need trusted data to include in their predictive and analytical models. Unlike competitive matching solutions, Match 360 with Watson is deeply integrated with Cloud Pak for Data services such as Watson Knowledge Catalog and can easily leverage InfoSphere® Master Data Management data model and entities. Match 360 offers the following features and benefits:

  • Provides a 360-degree view of critical data entities such as customers and suppliers
  • Helps improve your ability to target marketing towards your most valuable customers
  • Helps reduce misidentification rate of key customers that could result in lost revenue
  • Helps improve data scientist and business analyst productivity by quickly resolving key entities in data sets

Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information about known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, see the IBM Support Guide.

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Continuous delivery (CD) support

Technical support of a program product version or release will be available for a minimum of two years from the planned availability date, as long as your Subscription and Support is in effect.

This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (by telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Subscription and Support also provides you with access to versions, releases, and updates (CD releases, Long Term Support Releases or fixes) of the program.

You will be notified, through an announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with six months' notice.

If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
