Want to make smarter decisions with easy to implement technology? According to Liz Epadula’s Blog, IBM customers are able to get business insights and make smart decisions by using IBM’s Smart Analytics System in a new format as part of Novell’s SUSE Appliance Program.
A Novell Press Release regarding this collaboration between Novell and IBM DB2 will be released this week. I’ll post the link as soon as I can.
New virtual appliances and templates have been built that include DB2 installed on SLES 11. This makes it very each for developers to get started on DB2 Express C or to build their own appliances on top. To get started, link to the SUSE Studio, log in, and search for DB2.
In addition, there will be a podcast made available to step you through the use of the templates. I’ll provide the link as soon as it’s available, but it will be place on developerWorks if you want to search for it before I mention the link.
Thanks to Jennifer Chen, Irshad M Raihan, Jason Chan, and Irina Delidjakova for making me aware of this important collaboration.
PS… I’m leaving on vacation in the morning, so if you don’t see new entries from me in awhile, don’t be worried. I’ll be back… and more relaxed!
