Learn about several techniques which, taken together, allow you to configure your critical production data so that it is efficient (and non-disruptive) to execute analytical queries against it in real time. No need for a separate hybrid appliance, no need for a massive data warehouse. Read on....
Polls and surveys are increasing in use. If you are a DBA, developer, or data scientist, then it is good to understand how to structure your systems for transparency and proper use.
Today most of the tasks done by traditional DBAs are performed by artificial intelligence systems or the database itself. With so few important tasks left to perform, are DBAs really needed anymore?
Big data as an application (or as a service) is being supplanted by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. Few new requirements for a big data solution have arisen in the past few years. All the low-hanging fruit (fraud detection, customer preferences, just-in-time re-stocking and delivery, etc.) have already been big data-ized. Is this the end of big data?
IBM has enhanced its Operations Analytics software on the IBM Z platform by leveraging IBM Watson Machine Learning (WML) for z/OS. WML is implemented as a service that interfaces with several varieties of data, creates and trains machine learning models, scores them and compares the models with live metrics. The operations analytics software then classifies and analyzes the results to detect and predict problems. Read on to learn more!
Your production database environment stores personally identifiable information in an encrypted form, limits access to these fields and masks them when displayed. However, some types of data encryption create potential performance problems as well as security issues. Your data may be at risk unless you mask it effectively.
IBM’s machine learning is being used to improve the performance of analytical queries as well as operational queries and their associated applications. This requires management attention, as you must verify that your business is prepared to consume these ML and AI conclusions. Learn more…
