In order to gain actionable insight into their operations, businesses must often analyze large data sets comprising of both historic and current (or operational) data. However, a high percentage of queries for operational analytics systems - often up to 80 percent - are interactive lookups focused on data about a specific customer, account, or patient.
To deliver the correct information as rapidly as possible, the data warehouse supporting these systems must be optimized for the right balance of analytics performance and operational query throughput.
IBM Smart Analytics System is a collection of easy to order and fast to deliver operational analytics systems that help you effectively manage your data and gain the right business insights. The system is built to provide efficiency and strong return on investments with a variety of tools and features, all on a modular infrastructure. By leveraging a flexible infrastructure of IBM software, hardware, and services, the IBM Smart Analytics System provides organizations the capability to adjust and grow the solution to fit ever-evolving business intelligence needs.

IBM Smart Analytics System 5600 was developed based on operational analytics needs while maintaining the high availability and mission-critical reliability that are essential for today's environment. It is designed to simplify the delivery of information to the people in the business that need it the most, while helping to minimize the cost of building a complex architecture to support analytical applications.
Some key features of IBM Smart Analytics System 5600:
IBM Smart Analytics System 5600 offers the IBM hardware, software, and services infrastructure to support a single end-to-end operational analytics solution from a single vendor.
This powerful and flexible system provides:
A turnkey analytic solution, IBM Smart Analytics System 5600 enables you to consume information in the most digestible format, gain insight, and make smarter decisions today and into the future. At the core of the IBM Smart Analytics System 5600, you will find powerful warehouse and storage optimization capabilities (using adaptive compression). This foundation not only manages the data store, but it is essential for speeding system deployment and enabling near real-time analytics.
Data mining and text analytics - Predictive analytics to uncover opportunity
Powerful yet simple, the data mining capabilities available with the IBM Smart Analytics System enable integrated analytics of both structured and unstructured data. Standard data mining models (clustering, associations, classification, and prediction) are supported and can be developed easily via drag and drop in the Design Studio. The data mining models are executed in the production environment to provide real-time scoring of data records. Additionally, rich presentation components are provided to enable visual analysis of data mining results. With the system, decision makers can now organize and mine all your valuable information to help you uncover new opportunities, perform customer behavioral analysis, or assess potential risk.
Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act
Smart Analytics System 5600 is capable as of June 14, 2013, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

Statement of good security practices
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.

|IBM Electronic Services|
Electronic Service Agent and the IBM Electronic Support web portal are dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM Systems customers. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tool is a no-additional-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events, such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. The Electronic Service Agent tool can help you stay focused on your company's strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. Servers enabled with this tool can be monitored remotely around the clock by IBM Support all at no additional cost to you.
Now integrated into the base operating system of AIX® V5.3, AIX V6.1, and AIX V7.1, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and utilization issues to IBM , which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by the Electronic Service Agent tool also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Support web portal, and used to improve problem determination and resolution by you and the IBM support team. To access the tool main menu, simply type smitty esa_main, and select Configure Electronic Service Agent . In addition, ESA now includes a powerful Web user interface, giving the administrator easy access to status, tool settings, problem information, and filters. For more information and documentation on how to configure and use Electronic Service Agent , refer to
The IBM Electronic Support portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent tool-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.
Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the symptoms, diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.
Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM . The Electronic Service Agent tool securely transmits either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. It is viewable only by the customer and IBM . The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM .
More accurate reporting: Since system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, customers are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM , problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.
Customized support: Using the IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the My Systems and Premium Search sections of the Electronic Support website at
My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by Electronic Service Agent . Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.
