Total Value of Ownership (TVO) Assessment of the IBM + Hortonworks Solution for Analytics
The speed and scope of the business decision-making process is accelerating because of several emerging technology trends – Cloud, Social, Mobile, the Internet of Things (IoT), Analytics and Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML). To obtain faster actionable insights from this growing volume and variety of data, many organizations are deploying Analytics and Hadoop solutions across the entire workflow.
But rising IT costs, cumbersome manual processes and siloed-solutions have become the Achilles heel in deploying and operating Hadoop clusters at many organizations. In addition, data quality/security/privacy/governance and lack of skilled resources are major issues. To meet these challenges, organizations must deploy a cost-effective, easy-to-use, high-performance, reliable and integrated IT solution to consistently deliver the best business outcomes. This is the goal of the IBM + Hortonworks (IBM + HW) solution for Analytics.
