Big Data & Analytics

Why IBM & Mark III Systems for Big Data

Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data — so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone. This data comes from everywhere: sensors used to gather climate information, posts to social media sites, digital pictures and videos, purchase transaction records, and cell phone GPS signals to name a few. This data is big data.

Big data represents a new era in data exploration and utilization. IBM is uniquely positioned to help clients design, develop and execute a big data strategy that will enhance and complement existing systems and processes.

Clients have more data from more sources – this combination should lead to better decisions, right? But many organizations are analyzing a smaller percentage of their data than before. Applications and IT infrastructures can't keep up. Clients need to manage the volume, variety and velocity of data, apply analytics for better insight and use this insight to help make better business decisions faster than the competition. And all these goals need to be accomplished in a cost-effective manner.
