IBM Cloud Pak for Data Unifies and Simplifies

IBM Cloud Pak for Data

Cloud can create tremendous advantages by helping you harness data-driven insight, but many enterprises are still faced with a significant legacy system presence. Many companies find that the basic cloud model doesn’t address transformation complexities such as skills gaps, compliance, integration issues, vendor lock-in, and more. That’s why IBM has designed Cloud Pak for Data (one of six Cloud Paks available).

Cloud Pak for Data helps unify and simplify the collection, organization, and analysis of data with a focus on deriving insight as opposed to simply wrangling data. And the Cloud Pak enterprise-grade container software is designed to offer a faster, more reliable way to build, move, and manage workloads on the cloud.

Accelerate Your Cloud Journey

Cloud Pak for Data is designed to accelerate your journey to data analytics and AI value with four simple steps.

1. Collect
Make all data accessible, regardless of where it is

2. Organize
Make data understandable and consistent

3. Analyze
Enable insight from data everywhere it resides

4. Infuse
Operationalize AI, ensure trust and transparency
