Ok – so last week I put a blurb up that we used to make a feature graphic with and ONE person came back with a response or suggestion (which were VERY good, by the way) – SO THANK YOU Richard_Carter for playing with me last week!
His suggestions were “user exit; alerts; DB2, SNMP; monitoring; database; Optim Performance Manager; mechanism”, and his first one was the one that stood out to me the most and was the one that I would be able to graphically represent most easily! So THAT is why I used an exit sign for my feature graphic.
Why did I use a running man instead of just EXIT? I tried to think of things that could graphically represent “EXIT” and be understood internationally without using any text. Sometimes you need to think globally when it comes to imagery, and something that is understood in your country, or mine, might not be the same in the next country or continent over.
So THIS weeks blurb is…
Predictive analytics helps to find non-obvious, hidden patterns in large datasets. Current tools for predictive analytics, such as SPSS (an IBM company) or IBM InfoSphere Warehouse, expect data to be represented in an appropriate way before the actual analysis can take place. This is, however, not always the case. Especially data in SAP systems is not directly accessible to these tools. This article shows how IBM InfoSphere Information Server can be used to extract data from SAP systems for analysis within InfoSphere Warehouse and SPSS PASW Modeler.
And the next question would be… will anyone else besides Richard want to play?
