IBM has announced new consulting services and software that take the power of predictive analytics to new levels of impact for the highest-priority issues of C-suite decision-makers. The new analytic offerings address the emerging opportunities of big data to manage financial operations, decrease fraud and nurture next-generation customer relationships.
Based on experiences drawn from more than 20,000 analytics engagements, the new solutions combine innovations developed by IBM Research with new predictive technologies from dozens of companies IBM has acquired.
"IBM is helping Sprint manage and analyze network data 90 percent faster than before. We can now customize new products and services in real-time and respond instantly to changing market dynamics. The insights we gain from big data allows us to create and deliver new mobile applications in minutes, instead of hours, giving Sprint the ability to stay well ahead of our competitors," said Von McConnell, Executive Director of the Innovation and Advanced Labs, Sprint.
The new solutions can be delivered by IBM consultants, supported by applications management services capabilities, and cloud offerings. Clients can access these capabilities through IBM's big data technology platform. Clients can access IBM's solutions through a global network of eight Analytics Solution Centres. Credit qualified clients can take advantage of financing for services solutions and zero per cent loans for IBM software with IBM Global Financing.
