IBM unveils new smart analytics, transactional systems

To help clients manage analytic and transactional workloads

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM has unveiled new smart analytics and transactional systems, which the company says will help clients draw insights from vast amounts of data to anticipate emerging business trends, capture new opportunities and avoid risks.

The pureScale Application System with POWER7 technology and Smart Analytics Systems for x86 and mainframe environments are each integrated at every level, from microprocessors to hardware and software, tuned for analysing data and in real-time handling data intensive transactions.

The company claims that the new analytics systems will enable clients to manage analytics and transactional workloads and extract data insight up to twenty times faster compared to competitive piece parts, for improved business outcomes. These systems can also reduce storage space for structured and unstructured data by up to 80% with deep compression capabilities.

According to IBM, the pureScale Application System combines POWER7-based servers with WebSphere Application Server and DB2 pureScale software. The Smart Analytics System 9600 with System z, and model 5600 with System x, join the Power Systems based 7600 with integrated server, storage, software and services. These analytics workload optimised systems include pre-tuned components to speed deployment of business analytics offerings.

These new offerings deliver the integration and optimisation to more efficiently manage analytic and transactional workloads, freeing clients to invest time and resources in growing the business.
