Big data represents a new era in data exploration and utilisation, and IBM is uniquely positioned to help clients navigate this transformation. IBM InfoSphere® BigInsights and IBM InfoSphere Streams are the core technologies of IBM's platform for big data.
- IBM InfoSphere BigInsights is IBM's powerful and versatile solution for managing and analysing Internet - scale volumes of structured and unstructured data. Built on the open source Apache Hadoop software framework, InfoSphere BigInsights enhances this technology to withstand the demands of your enterprise, adding administrative, workflow, provisioning, and security features, along with sophisticated analytical capabilities from IBM Research. The result is that you get a more developer - and user - friendly solution for complex, large - scale analytics.
- IBM InfoSphere Streams enables continuous analysis of massive volumes of streaming data with sub - millisecond response times. The offering provides a highly scalable and agile infrastructure that can support a wide variety of both structured and unstructured data types.
