Hybrid (heterogeneous architectures), trust (ensuring end-to-end accuracy and trust in the entire system), and agility (speed of thought analysis) are the core principles for this transformation to IBM’s Analytics portfolio. The product stack comprises Cognos Analytics, Watson Analytics, and Spark sparking SPSS for Predictive.
With an incredible built-in Search facility that understands the context you are in, Cognos BI just got better being rebranded as Cognos Analytics, by enabling smarter self-service analytics and self-initiated discovery and visualization.
Watson Analytics takes the bias/subjectivity out of the analytical journey by enabling the Citizen Data Scientist and other Business Users to statistically interrogate the data. Detecting trends, patterns and anomalies just got a lot simpler.
IBM Predictive Analytics now empowers the new multi-dimensional Citizen Data Scientist with the open source-driven (Spark) SPSS framework. Their Predictive story just became more personalized, intuitive, managed and above all, powerful.
