High volume, high velocity, high variety – these are just a few of the information challenges that businesses face today and in the near future. Big data is still a hot topic for both IT and business leaders who recognize it as an innovative and cost-effective way of gaining deeper insight into the business and driving better decision-making. While running out of data to analyze is not a problem, too much data from too many sources could be.

The longevity and qualities of service offered by the mainframe has made it an information hub, with vast amounts of data – from transactions and in multi-terabyte data warehouses – that can feed valuable business analytics. Join us for this complimentary webcast as featured Gartner analyst Donald Feinberg shares an analyst's viewpoint of what big data means for organizations, the impact it can have on businesses and the role of the mainframe in realizing this potential. He will be joined by Mark Simmonds of IBM® who will discuss the role of mainframes as a key part of IBM's big data & analytics strategy along with the roadmap for IBM's System Z portfolio for big data.

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