IBM Smart Analytics System and Powerful Intel® Xeon® Processor-Based IBM System x Servers Deliver Business Insights
There are some things that you don’t mind waiting for, like a perfect cup of coffee. Business intelligence (BI) is not one of those things. Every day, your organization collects more data about its customers, partners, and markets. BI and analytics give you the ability to make sense of that ocean of data, crystallizing the patterns, trends, and knowledge that help top executives and front-line employees make smart, fast decisions; find opportunities; and keep your business ahead of the pack.
But if organizations cannot afford to wait for BI, neither can they afford to write a blank check to create it. IT budgets are already stretched to the breaking point. If you listen carefully, you can almost hear a giant sucking sound as racks of data center servers absorb scarce floor space, power, and cooling capacity. Meanwhile, IT organizations are under tremendous pressure to extract maximum value out of every dollar spent. But with IT data volumes expected to grow by leaps and bounds over the next five years, senior staffers are watching maintenance and troubleshooting tasks crowd strategic projects off their calendars.
IBM and Intel have been working for years to deliver optimized computing solutions and to bring enterprise-class technologies into industry-standard systems.
The IBM* Smart Analytics System family combines hardware, software, and services into systems that are integrated and optimized, can be installed in days instead of months, and can be quickly scaled out to support changing business needs. Available in a range of configurations and capabilities, including several models powered by the latest, most powerful Intel® Xeon® processor–based servers, the IBM Smart Analytics System family is designed to deliver cost-effective, enterprise-class analytics—without the wait.
