With the system, decision-makers can access a consistent view of information throughout the business and multiple data sources, uncover and share new insights, and make better decisions to drive the business forward.

Multidimensional cubing services -- Gain insight from unseen data relationships

Smart Analytics System provides high-performance cubing services to give decision-makers a fast, multidimensional view of data stored in a relational database for such analysis as how to improve product profitability or customer satisfaction. Your organization can create, edit, import, export, and deploy cube models over the relational warehouse schema to perform these deeper multidimensional analyses across multiple business variables and large data sets.

Cubing services also provide optimization techniques to dramatically improve the performance of online analytical processing (OLAP) queries. In doing so, it simplifies the delivery of business analytics and optimization results and puts more power into more decision-makers hands to analyze data and generate business insight.

Data mining and text analytics -- Predictive analytics to uncover opportunity

Powerful yet simple, the data mining capabilities available with the IBM Smart Analytics System enables 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 tooliing.

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 uncover new opportunities, perform customer behavioral analysis or assess potential risk.

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Usage restriction

Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) applies

All distributed software licenses include Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) for a period of 12 months from the date of acquisition, providing a streamlined way to acquire IBM software and assure technical support coverage for all licenses. Extending coverage for a total of three years from date of acquisition may be elected.

While your Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.
