IBM (NYSE: IBM) has unveiled new software and services to help customers more effectively gain competitive insight, optimize infrastructure and better manage resources to address Internet-scale data.
Organizations now can implement and analyze tens-of-petabytes of data in its native format and gain critical intelligence in sub-second response times, IBM said.
IBM also announced a $100 million investment for continued research on technologies and services that will aid customers to manage and exploit data as it continues to grow in diversity, speed and volume. The effort will focus on research to drive the future of massive scale analytics, through advancing software, systems and services capabilities.
“The volume and velocity of information is generated at a record pace,” said Steve Mills, senior vice president and group executive, IBM Software & Systems. “This is magnified by new forms of data coming from social networking and the explosion of mobile devices. Through our extensive capabilities in business and technology expertise, IBM is best positioned to help clients not only extract meaningful insight, but enable them to respond at the same rate at which the data arrives.”
