Collaboration with Lightbend

In IBM Fast Data Platform, Lightbend and IBM teamed up to bring together the tools needed to rapidly capture and analyze large volumes of data in real time. The joint offering includes all the essential tools to build, run and monitor event-driven, streamed applications and microservices — infused with AI and machine learning. Event-driven applications enable businesses to detect and act on events, such as anomalies that disrupt manufacturing lines, or changes in the adequacy of bank capital.

“Working with IBM Db2 Event Store and Lightbend's Fast Data Platform give you an opportunity to affectively pull together some core features for enrichment of data, for delivery of data, and for management of data. It allows you to introduce machine learning and deep learning, on both streaming as well as persisted data effectively,”

—Karl Wehden, Director of Product Management, Lightbend
