IBM z Systems and, in particular, IBM z13 with its new features and functions enable all of the advantages of improved performance and lowered costs, providing real-time analytics-based decisions.
With the many new features and functions of IBM z13, your organization's workloads will definitely benefit.
One of the new features/functions of the IBM z/13 includes the addition of SIMD-MASS and ATLAS libraries for IBM z/OS® and Linux on z Systems: single-instruction, multiple-data (SIMD), Mathematical Acceleration Subsystem (MASS ), and Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software (ATLAS).
The MASS software libraries offer improved performance over standard mathematical library routines and are thread-safe. A piece of code is thread-safe if it only manipulates shared data structures in a manner that guarantees safe execution by multiple threads at the same time. The MASS for z/OS software libraries include accelerated sets of frequently-used mathematical functions for SIMD libraries. Additionally, you can now bring MASS code running on other platforms onto z/OS.
You may ask yourself, but what does this mean in the realm of analytics? Well, it allows for the construction of richer, more complex analytics models that exploit SIMD to provide better accuracy of insight. And better accuracy of insight means more accurate linkage to customer information across channels. You want to translate that data into something meaningful to your company, and you want to make sure it is accurate!
