Are you looking for faster and more direct access to data as it comes into a transactional system so it can be used in analytic processes? The challenge is when transactional processing and analytic applications are managed independently in separate environments. Data that is spread across multiple platforms and departments away from the transactional source data has been shown to increase data latency, cost, and complexity, as well as governance and security risks. It also makes it more difficult for organizations to deliver the real-time insight needed to increase revenue, reduce costs and minimize risk.

Today, staying ahead of the competition requires being able to generate rapid, data-driven decisions out of the growing volumes of data coming into your business. For IBM® clients whose transactional data originates on System z®, revolutionary technologies like DB2® Analytics Accelerator are creating new opportunities for IT to deliver analytics in near real-time across the enterprise while minimizing cost and complexity. This is taking IT from technology implementers to business innovators by introducing technology that can more directly impact revenue growth, cost savings and risk reduction for a more competitive and high-performance business.

Join us for this complimentary webcast as we share insights based on IBM’s own journey via the Business Analytics Competency Center (BACC). The BACC delivers analytics as a service to more than 400,000 named users via a private analytics cloud. This session will focus on the implementation and use of the DB2 Analytics Accelerator and other zAnalytics technologies as part of a hybrid transactional and analytics environment on System z. You will hear specifics about the IT benefits of this new approach to analytics and the significant impact it is having on businesses.

Join us after the webcast for a live question-and-answer session. This webcast will also be available for replay after the event.
