Kognito and IBM BladeCenter have teamed to provide a fast, scalable database platform for data analytics. Kognitio is a leading provider of solutions to business problems that require acquisition, rationalisation and analysis of both large and complex data. Recently Kognito completed a highly successful benchmark of its WX2 analytical database on IBM BladeCenter System X blade servers. Sean Jackson of Kognito writes on the "load and go" solution that BladeCenter System X offers and the future seminars to explain benefits discovered in the successful benchmark:
"...The solution is targeted at business users who want to gain fast access to data within the enterprise and undertake various activities such as querying and reporting, data exploration, data mining as well as adhere to risk and compliance regulations in order to facilitate company growth and performance. The solution is also geared towards DBAs and IT managers who struggle to answer business users’ queries and deliver analytical data quickly. Many companies are challenged by the confines of their database or data warehouse and face increased costs as the volume and complexity of queries from users increase....."
"...As a result of this successful benchmark, IBM and Kognitio are running a series of seminars to educate enterprise users and database managers about the benefits of IBM and Kognitio WX2 to their business and how they can reduce their operating costs by quickly getting the answers from their data...."
