Cloud-based data services from IBM

IBM has launched what it calls a new generation of data services on the IBM Cloud designed to ensure more trusted information can be applied more readily across an organization.

The company reports the new services will enable organizations to:

  • simplify and automate the ability to find, refine and prepare data;
  • warehouse data in the cloud, making it instantly available for analytics;
  • curate unstructured data services to increase the confidence in analytics; and
  • enhance mobile and Web applications with embedded analytics.

IBM says the new services introduced provide the key capabilities to help organizations shift from working on the data to putting data to work for their business. They include:

  • IBM DataWorks—a set of cloud-based data refinery services that shape, cleanse, match and secure data;
  • IBM dashDB—a cloud-based data warehousing and analytics service with in-memory technology built in to deliver answers faster and includes integration with Cloudant, IBM’s NoSQL database as a service (DBaaS), which allows Cloudant clients to embed analytics in their applications with a few clicks; and
  • IBM Cloudant Local—an on-premise edition of the fully managed cloud database as a service that enables a fluid hybrid cloud data layer that spans private data centers, mobile devices and third-party cloud providers.

IBM also introduced Watson Curator, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering that increases confidence in the delivery of quality content collections and governance for IBM Watson Solutions.
