IBM DB2* with BLU Acceleration* Unlocks the Value of Your Data
Extract near real-time insights from critical data using IBM DB2* with BLU Acceleration* running on the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family
Every sensor reading, every Web click, every social media post contributes to the torrent of data rushing at you. Just getting a handle on the volume and variety of data coming at you with ever-increasing velocity is challenging in itself, and that’s before trying to analyze it. But the value of big data isn’t the data itself—it’s uncovering the insights locked in your data that is important.
Even if you have your big data strategy in place, there’s still a lot of data to handle—and more of it all the time. According to the Harvard Review of Business, over 2.5 exabytes of data was created every day in 2012. Put another way, in 2012, as much data was created daily as existed in the entire world in 1986.
The physical limits of computing, such as the speed of accessing data from relational databases, have created bottlenecks in data analysis. Complex calculations could take hours or even days, and data could provide insights, but not always fast enough to maximize value.
