IBM Open Data Analytics for z/OS (IzODA)

Welcome to the IBM Open Data Analytics for z/OS (IzODA) content solution, your homepage for technical resources.

IzODA enables data from multiple, disconnected sources to be virtually integrated into a single, logical data source and shared with any application, providing the right data, in the right format, at the right time on z/OS.

IzODA enables you to simplify development, implement a wide range of machine learning and AI algorithms, federate analytics with unified access to data, and accelerate analytics results.

IzODA integrates industry standard, open-source analytics technologies with advanced data access and abstraction services. The solution is designed to simplify data analysis. It combines open-source run times and libraries with analysis of z/OS data at its source, to reduce data movement and federate analytics processing, and increase the value of insights gained from leveraging current data.
