Long before humans go to the moon or Mars, we'll need to send unmanned missions to establish the early infrastructure. Don Haderle, a scholar of the mainframe, recently suggested that mainframe computer systems will become the obvious solution for the moon, Mars, and beyond. Learn why.
For the first time in human experience, there’s the opportunity to transform a city by listening to all of its inhabitants, individually. That’s the mission of the Jakarta Smart City (JSC) project, and it’s a major challenge in a district of some 10 million residents.
In today’s energy industry, one of the key priorities is finding new ways to cost efficiently keep up with insatiable demands for power, while also delivering renewable energy. You must be able to predict when events will occur and make the first move. Being first to respond to customer or market
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
