Improve streaming analytics capabilities

Explore Forrester's survey about organizations’ use of machine learning with fast data solutions and satisfaction with existing solutions.

Capitalize on fast data

Learn from Forrester about the shifting data landscape, benefits of fast data and the data sources considered the most important.

Innovate with event-driven applications

Build smarter reactive apps using streams, machine learning and a high-speed event store with a fully integrated platform.


Store and analyze more than 250 billion events per day

Massive data ingests

High-speed data ingestion technology captures a million rows per second per node; linear scale of compute and storage.

Embedded real-time analytics

Hybrid transactional/analytical processing (HTAP) is optimized for streamed data performance.

Built on the Apache Spark platform

Use familiar capabilities with support of the Spark API and native Db2 Event Store APIs (Spark: SQL, streaming, analytics and machine learning).

Use of open data format

Data is stored using the Apache Parquet open source columnar data format, eliminating vendor lock-in concerns. Storage and compute are separated.

Built-in machine learning

Db2 Event Store is natively integrated with IBM Watson Studio for building, training and deploying machine learning models.
