“ Our customers send roughly 35 billion emails every year, and with every email they send, we have more data that we can analyze and feed back to them to help improve their success. Our work analyzing email delivery times has already given our customers a 15-25% lift in their email campaign performance – and that means more customers in their doors and increased revenue. ”

Why IBM for Hadoop?

IBM InfoSphere BigInsights brings the power of Hadoop to the enterprise. Apache™ Hadoop® is the open source software framework, used to reliably manage large volumes of structured and unstructured data.

IBM makes it simpler to use Hadoop to get value out of big data and build big data applications. It enhances open source technology to withstand the demands of your enterprise, adding administrative, discovery, development, provisioning, security, and support, along with best-in-class analytical capabilities. The result is a more user-friendly solution for complex, large scale projects.

InfoSphere BigInsights, for Hadoop, empowers enterprises of all sizes to cost effectively manage and analyze big data – the massive volume, variety and velocity of data that consumers and businesses create every day. InfoSphere BigInsights helps increase operational efficiency by modernizing your data warehouse environment as query-able archive, allowing you to store and analyze large volumes of multi-structured data without straining the data warehouse.
