ENETERPRISE DATA IS YOUR EDGE: it’s the next key commodity for enterprise, but unlocking the value of vast data sets can be a challenge. Data lakes are growing, and while they are potential gold mines of crucial information, analysing this data – and protecting it from competitors and criminals – is increasingly complex. As business evolves, seeking to become future-proof, enterprises must use their data to innovate, optimise operations, unlock key values, reduce costs and grow their customer bases.
Advanced analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence can help drive the enterprise mainframe to the heart of the intelligent, evolving digital enterprise. At the IBM Unleash the Heart of your Enterprise executive forum, you will discover IBM’s strategies and solutions to keep the mainframe at the heart of the evolved enterprise. See the impact of analytics, machine learning and AI in the mainframe environment; hear IBM’s articulation of the four-step analytics journey from foundational phase through to the AI/cognitive space.
And crucially, discover IBM’s solutions to data protection and risk management in light to GDPR and POPI compliance.
The sheer volume and velocity of data as well as diversity of users requires a much more robust yet flexible approach to security — a risk-based approach to handling users, processes and technologies, with automated and role-based access controls and systems that process data securely, efficiently and ensure integrity of data and resiliency in key business processes. Mainframe can help ensure that happens. At the IBM Unleash the Heart of your Enterprise executive forum, you’ll learn how.
