IBM big data and analytics platform

Now known as IBM Watson Foundations

IBM is unique in having developed an enterprise class big data and analytics platform that allows you to address the full spectrum of big data business challenges.

Why a platform versus individual products to address big data pain points? The real benefit of the platform is leverage – the ability to start with one capability and easily add others over your big data journey. IBM is the only vendor with this broad and balanced view of big data with the needs of a platform – the benefit is pre-integration of its components to reduce your implementation time and cost.
