When I think back to last year’s Information on Demand (now Insight) conference, one customer story in particular comes to mind: Memorial Healthcare System’s uncovering of vendor fraud, a bid rigging scheme and a potential staff risk in what began as an effort to simply streamline and improve the accounts payable process. When this routine investigation turned ugly, it became apparent that there was a real need for attention to fraud identification and reduction in all businesses today.

IBM’s leadership in the Hadoop world has been acknowledged by Gartner, IDC and, most recently, in Forrester Research’s recent publication, the Forrester Wave Big Data Hadoop Solutions, Q1 2014 Report. This leadership was established by delivering the world’s deepest portfolio of big data and analytics technologies and solutions, spanning services, software, research and hardware. As an enterprise incumbent, IBM understands that Hadoop is one technology in a data architecture strategy. IBM’s strategy is to enable business people with a consistent analytic experience, independent of the technologies used to store and process data, while providing IT with the tools and flexibility to manage, optimize and secure all data, whether in Hadoop, a relational store or streaming.

IBM® InfoSphere BigInsights upcoming release includes Big SQL 3.0, bringing performance, security and improved ROI to Hadoop projects. This is an important leap forward to seamlessly transitioning analytic applications from relational database management systems (RDBMS) to Hadoop distributions. In addition, the new release incorporates data security, on par with a traditional data warehouse, and the ability to join and access data from different physical sources. This new release further enables organizations to use existing SQL skills and data infrastructure, reinforcing InfoSphere BigInsights overall return-on-investment (ROI).

After 16 years with the Cognos products, I confess to being somewhat biased towards business analytics and its announcements at IOD. I loved hearing the reactions to this week’s announcements.
November 6, 2013
Over 50 analysts, representing 24 research firms, attended IOD this week. They are here, not only to cover the event, but also to learn first-hand about the products, hear customer perspectives and meet with IBM management. Gartner, Forrester Research and IDC sent the greatest number of people, representing over half of all analysts attending. We welcome these influential individuals and their valuable perspectives to Information On Demand 2013!

When the IBM Institute of Business Value (IBV) published its annual analytics study this year, "Analytics: A blueprint for value," 19% of respondents self-identified as "substantially outperforming their market or industry peers." When this group was compared to other respondents, the IBV identified nine levers which differentiated the behaviour of these leaders: Culture, Data, Expertise, Funding, Measurement, Platform, Source of Value, Sponsorship and Trust.
