Jumping into an increasingly competitive market, IBM has launched a cloud-based data warehouse service, which the company says offers a way for enterprises to analyze their operations while bypassing most of the headaches that come with running such a system in-house.
“You used to have to go through a number of steps to get to the data. That is changing. People now want immediate access to the data,” said Derek Schoettle, IBM general manager for cloud data services.
Available on the IBM Bluemix portal of platform services, the IBM DashDB Enterprise MPP (massive parallel processing) offers a fully managed data warehouse, potentially saving organizations the costs and hassles with setting up one in house.
