The major innovation with the big data revolution has been to optimize how quickly data can be analyzed versus how quickly data can be poured into a database. This turns large data stores into gold mines of data insights rather than expensive, forgotten data archives.
Why is this important?
Because we now have so much more useful data around our businesses. Social media has a big part to play in this, as does every system of engagement within the organization.
Large, secure relational databases like IBM DB2 are taking this into account through innovations that offer unmatched reporting, analytics speed and efficiency with the flexibility of multi-platform software to increase your operational efficiency.
Recently, Dr Iqbal Goralwalla from Triton Consulting discussed these new innovations in a webcast with John Park, IBM DB2 Product Manager.
