At a time when data breaches and personalized, sensitive data leaks are receiving great focus, individuals and governments alike are pushing hard on the business community to do more to protect citizens' rights and the sensitive customer data these companies maintain.
Some people think of master data management (MDM) purely as a platform for organizing and mobilizing enterprise information. While this is true, leading companies view MDM more as a philosophy or a set of best practices, not just a suite of software tools.
Typically, ingesting streaming event data, persisting with low latency and analyzing it along with historical event data requires integrating multiple analytic systems. IBM Db2 EventStore is purpose built to simplify the complexity of harnessing event data with a single system. Its unique
Data already is the new currency and is at the heart of everything digital. I like to repeat the adage, “Data becomes Information, becomes Knowledge, becomes Wisdom”. And “It’s all about the data”. So why do we send up probes, sensors or satellites — for the data?
If information is paramount, it becomes our collective responsibility to nurture, develop, secure and protect information. One should nurture and develop information so that it is well formed, mature and timely; and secure and protect information so that it is valued and guarded, not shared or
Universal connectivity is fueling streams of event data from a variety of event sources. Increasingly, organizations are developing and deploying event driven applications to harness the growing volumes of event data. IBM Db2 EventStore offers a scalable integrated system for enterprises to ingest
IBM Analytics University is a learning event where you can join over 75 workshops, sessions, labs, in-depth discussions, and deep-dive product demonstrations. This is not merely a “show-and-tell” event. IBM Analytics University will have you working hands-on with our products to test and experience
In the connected world of today’s digital economy, apps, IoT devices, vehicles, appliances and servers are generating endless stream of event data. The stream of events describes what is happening over time and offers the opportunity to track and analyze things as they happen.
It’s no secret that most successful businesses today depend on data—and that’s more true of technology companies and start-ups than any other segment. The ability to analyze information, derive insight quickly, and make confident, timely decisions can often help a software company break into a new

Data is a potent business resource and the key to gaining and maintaining competitive advantage. Last month, IBM and Hortonworks announced a partnership to bring data science to the world on an open platform, offering Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) along with IBM Data Science Experience (DSX) and
If you’re truly data-driven, how often do you make a critical decision based solely on information from one part of the company? At the organizational level, how valuable is data when decision makers have to rely on IT (not to mention a tangle of technical and bureaucratic red tape) just to access
Upon reading his own obituary in the newspaper, famed author Mark Twain is said to have remarked that reports of his death were greatly exaggerated. I can only imagine that if the data warehouse appliance were a 19th century American novelist, it might say the same thing. For a while now,
It seems that we’re reaching the point where the Internet of Things (IoT) is moving from the domain of enthusiastic early-adopters to the more challenging, more profitable territory of mainstream enterprise technology. Event-driven architectures are playing a key role in these types of applications
