IBM Offers New Ways to Find Value in Unstructured Data with New Bluemix Features

There are many good things to say about IBM Bluemix cloud services. In case you aren't familiar with this cloud computing software, it's a new tool that lets you solve real-world problems with the help of IBM infrastructure, Watson, and IBM's many software programs and services. It all comes together on the Bluemix cloud platform to create a unique and useful data collection for companies to analyze and learn from. It's being touted as one of the best new tools for helping businesses solve their biggest problems and improve their bottom lines through the Internet of Things.

Now, IBM has announced several new cloud data services and features that will go with Bluemix. The goal of these updates is to offer accelerated migration of data to the cloud, greater organization of applications, and smoother generation of business insights. This new move is expected to impact the effectiveness of cloud computing and data generation for businesses of all sizes.

IBM announced in their press release that these new features are being rolled out as a solution to many of the frustrations that organizations are trying to overcome. Through their research, they've discovered that businesses are having a very difficult time transferring their data to the cloud. Then, once the information is finally there, they don't have any real tools to manage it. The press release also pointed out that by 2020, there will be double the amount of data to deal with, which makes the problem even more complicated for users.

"Cloud is the platform that enables cognitive intelligence," John Murphy, vice president of the IBM Watson Data Platform, said in the press release. "We're continuing to grow our catalog of cloud data services on Bluemix so that we can help developers and data scientists better manage and more quickly interpret data for business innovation."

There have been many updates to the Bluemix interface in the past year, but their newest services include the following:

IBM dashDB for Transactions
This tool is a fully managed SQL database service. It's meant to optimize the transactional and web workloads so that developers can better use their cloud-based applications. This is one of many tools in the dashDB portfolio that's built to facilitate a smoother and more available database environment.

IBM Decision Optimization on Cloud
They're currently beta testing the Decision Optimization on Cloud tool on Bluemix. As the name suggests, the tool collects massive amounts of data and analyzes it to help you make the best decisions for your organization. It will offer advice like recommended cuts for an improved bottom line or changes to make in your warehouse to promote efficiency.

IBM Bluemix Lift
This is one of the most exciting editions, used to speed up data migration from data centers on the premises. The data will go directly to the Bluemix or Watson Data Platform. IBM's official press relief makes the claim that Lift will move data 10 times faster than previous solutions. It's also encrypted for optimum security, and it's supposed to be the most reliable transition feature available.

The benefits of using Bluemix's new features are huge for companies that rely on the service and those who are looking to make the switch to the cloud. Because it speeds up the process and makes the analytics and organization features simple, it's an excellent tool for those looking to move to the cloud without lost downtime.

The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.

@DevOpsSummit will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development time, the amount of enterprise IT professionals put out fires, and support time generally. Time spent on infrastructure development is significantly increased, and DevOps practitioners report more software releases and higher quality. Sponsors of @DevOpsSummit will benefit from unmatched branding, profile building and lead generation opportunities through:

  • Featured on-site presentation and ongoing on-demand webcast exposure to a captive audience of industry decision-makers.
  • Showcase exhibition during our new extended dedicated expo hours
