Overview
Bottom rule

IBM SPSS Modeler with Scoring Adapter for zEnterprise V15.0 enables the real-time scoring of the transactional data in IBM DB2® for z/OS® to help you deliver better, more profitable decisions at the point of customer impact. The real-time scoring of transactional data allows organizations to incorporate all of the newest and most relevant data as it is received directly into the decision-making process. With SPSS Modeler with Scoring Adapter for zEnterprise , the scoring adapters are deployed directly in the DB2 for z/OS Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) database so that each new record can be evaluated to produce a score (or prediction) as it is received. By no longer having to export the data from the database, run it through the model, and import it back again, you can dramatically improve performance and reduce the cost of the resources necessary to execute the real-time score.

IBM SPSS Modeler Server Scoring Adapter for DB2 on z/OS , a separately orderable feature of IBM DB2 Accessories Suite for z/OS , V2.2, has been withdrawn from marketing. For details, refer to Withdrawal Announcement 913-152, dated July 09, 2013 .

Description
Bottom rule

IBM SPSS Modeler with Scoring Adapter for zEnterprise V15.0 provides the ability to add predictive analytics to Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) applications running on IBM z/OS . In order to deliver real-time scoring capabilities with IBM SPSS , the following products must be deployed:

SPSS Modeler with Scoring Adapter for zEnterprise is deployed with the OLTP application on z/OS . SPSS Modeler Professional can be deployed on either Linux™ for System z® or on a distributed platform, such as Windows™ or UNIX™ .

IBM SPSS Modeler with Scoring Adapter is used to create and iteratively enhance the models that are to be used and publishes these models into IBM DB2 for z/OS . The scoring adapter provides a scoring engine that runs in the DB2 for z/OS User Defined Function (UDF) runtime. It defines a UDF that applications can easily invoke using SQL to run the scoring models synchronously, in-line within their transactions, by using live transaction data as inputs for the scoring. This maximizes the effectiveness and accuracy of the scoring results by basing the scoring process on both current and historical information. Since the scoring adapter runs imbedded in DB2 for z/OS , it provides the same excellent scalability and performance as DB2 for z/OS . As a result, it allows you to keep up with large loads and meet very stringent response time Service Level Agreements (SLAs). The scoring adapter feature runs as a UNIX System Services (USS) application within the Workload Manager (WLM) application environment in the DB2 for z/OS UDF runtime. Along with the installation of the feature, you will need to configure USS and a WLM application environment for it.

On a distributed platform, you will need to install IBM SPSS Modeler and, optionally, IBM SPSS Modeler Server. To leverage unique networking capabilities on System z for performance and a simpler deployment architecture, you should install SPSS Modeler Server on Linux for System z in the same Central Electronic Complex (CEC) as the scoring adapter for DB2 on z/OS .

IBM SPSS Modeler provides a set of data mining tools that enables you to quickly develop predictive models using business expertise and deploy them into business operations that improve decision making by predicting the best possible outcome. Designed around the industry-standard Cross Industry Standard Process for Data Mining (CRISP-DM) model, SPSS Modeler supports the entire data mining process, from data to better business results. SPSS Modeler offers a variety of modeling methods taken from machine learning, artificial intelligence, and statistics. The wide variety of modeling methods available on the SPSS Modeler palette enable you to derive new information from your data and develop predictive models. Each method has certain strengths that are best suited for particular types of problems. SPSS Modeler can be purchased as a standalone product or used as a client in combination with SPSS Modeler Server. A number of additional options are also available. For more information, refer to

http://www-03.ibm.com/software/products/us/en/modeler-linux-system-z/

IBM SPSS Modeler

IBM SPSS Modeler is a functionally complete version of the product that you install and run on your personal computer. You can run SPSS Modeler in local mode as a standalone product or use it in distributed mode, along with IBM SPSS Modeler Server, for improved performance on large data sets. With SPSS Modeler, you can build accurate predictive models quickly and intuitively, without programming. Using the unique visual interface, you can easily visualize the data mining process. With the support of the advanced analytics embedded in the product, you can discover previously hidden patterns and trends in your data. You can model outcomes and understand the factors that influence them, enabling you to take advantage of business opportunities and mitigate risks. SPSS Modeler is available in two editions: SPSS Modeler Professional and SPSS Modeler Premium.

IBM SPSS Modeler Server

IBM SPSS Modeler uses a client/server architecture to distribute requests for resource-intensive operations to powerful server software, resulting in faster performance on larger data sets. SPSS Modeler Server runs continually in distributed analysis mode on a server host in conjunction with one or more IBM SPSS Modeler installations. In this way, SPSS Modeler Server provides superior performance on large data sets because memory-intensive operations can be performed on the server without downloading data to the client computer. IBM SPSS Modeler Server also provides support for SQL optimization and in-database modeling capabilities, delivering further benefits in performance and automation.

Ordering example

The total number of Value Units is calculated according to the following example.

If your required license capacity is 1,500 MSUs for your selected System z IPLA product, the applicable Value Units would be:

Translation from MSUs to Value Units
 
          MSUs    *  Value Units/MSU = Value Units
Base          3   *  1.00            =    3.00
Tier A       42   *   .45            =   18.90
Tier B      130   *   .36            =   46.80
Tier C      140   *   .27            =   37.80
Tier D    1,185   *   .20            =  237.00

Total     1,500                         343.50

When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
