IBM Cloud Pak for Data is a fully integrated platform for AI, analytics, reporting and planning. It supports the entire analytics and AI lifecycle: from accessing data, to delivering solutions to users, to monitoring finished AI models.

With this platform, you increase your efficiency in orchestrating all available data. You also reduce the effort and complexity for data analysis and preparation. As a result, your transformation to a data-driven enterprise succeeds qualitatively better and faster. The solution follows a new architectural concept for data platforms, which is called Data Fabric.

"By using IBM Cloud Pak for Data, you get 8x faster access to distributed data for half the cost. You can also reduce ETL requirements by up to 65%." IBM

Use the modern, scalable, powerful and integrated platform for all business analytics needs to deliver information faster and gain insights sooner – e.g. through a Data Catalog (IBM Watson Knowledge Catalog) that makes your distributed data discoverable.

Improve the timeliness, consistency, and thus the credibility of your data through a high degree of automation and standardization in data acquisition, preparation, processing, and tracking – for example, through modern approaches such as AutoSQL, AutoAI, AutoPrivacy, and AutoCatalog.

Enable comprehensive data usage security in accordance with the GDPR by deploying privacy and usage policies for all sensitive data – e.g., easily configurable masking of personal data to implement data governance.

Enable your employees to work with relevant data – despite different backgrounds and regardless of technical skills. IBM Cloud Pak for Data brings services for every type of user: from Python and R, to visual modeling capabilities, to automated creation of AI models and analyses based on them.

Get access to all data silos in local databases or in your distributed cloud systems. Data virtualization allows you to access the data without physically storing it in Cloud Pak for Data. If needed, you can also implement and manage database solutions in Cloud Pak for Data, such as a data warehouse or a data lake.

You decide where you want to run Cloud Pak for Data. From one or more of the major cloud providers, to our Data Center, to your own hardware, operation is feasible. This approach is enabled by proven cloud techniques such as containerization with Red Hat OpenShift.

ibm ilog cplex

optimized business decisions using mathematical modeling

IBM ILOG CPLEX (CPLEX) is an analytical toolkit for modeling and solving linear optimization problems. The goal of such (linear) optimization is to find the optimum of a system that depends on various influences. In mathematical terms, it is the calculation of a minimum or maximum of an objective function. Such an objective function can be, for example, a formula for sales, costs, yield or inventory.

CPLEX provides decision support and enables the rapid development and implementation of optimization models based on mathematical models. The tool combines an integrated development environment (IDE) with powerful Solvers for optimization and the advantages of the modeling language OPL (Optimization Programming Language) - plus connections to the programming languages C, C++, Java and Python. In addition, a Matlab toolbox and interfaces to SPSS are available.

You enter your mathematical optimization potential as an objective function and the conditions under which the objective is to be achieved - CPLEX provides you with solutions for the optimization.

By using ILOG CPLEX you can:

  • Optimize your business decisions
  • Quickly develop, implement, and commission optimization models thanks to flexible interfaces and predefined implementation scenarios
  • Significantly improve your business results with real-world applications
  • Optimize your KPIs (production, profits, resource utilization, routes, etc.) - respond optimally to acute events and problems, evolve optimization models to adapt to changing business processes

IBM Watson

Transparent decision support through AI

IBM Watson, as an open multicloud platform in Artificial Intelligence, offers diverse tools and pre-built solutions to support you with accurate predictions, automate decisions and processes, and shorten/accelerate value creation times.

With tools like Watson Studio or Watson Machine Learning we prepare your data, build models and implement them in your production environment. Financial forecasting as well as decision optimization through Machine Learning and Deep Learning can be implemented quickly in an open environment – and above all, they are comprehensible.

In addition to the possibility of developing an individual solution from scratch using the tools mentioned above, there is also the option of tailoring one or more predefined IBM application(s) to your company:

  • Watson Discovery (enterprise search engine, with discovery and analysis of hidden trends and correlations in enterprise data)
  • Watson Speech to Text (real-time audio transcription for meaningful analytics)
  • Watson Natural Language Understanding (metadata extraction such as concepts, keywords, categories, sentiments, or relationships from text)
  • Watson Assistant (conversational interface creation to applications or devices)

In addition, the application can be extended with speech, vision or empathy functionalities via IBM Watson APIs, so that visual impressions, opinions and personal preferences are included in the analysis. We would be happy to advise you according to your individual requirements.

ibm spss modeler
