Let A.I Empower Your Business

It’s time to

Leverage AI

We have moved from saying that “AI is coming” to “AI is here and now.” AI is a cataclysmic shift that is causing not just IT in organizations but also the CIO, the CTO, and the CEO to rethink their business, urgently asking themselves: Is there a way that we can leverage AI? How do we use AI? How do we get there?

AI requires leveraging existing data stores and analytics that need to connect into a deep learning workflow. Understanding this, IBM has focused on those aspects that cause businesses to spend inordinate amounts of time building an AI environment, which, first and foremost, is about preparing the data.

The Foundation for AI Infrastructure

A Better Data Lake

While businesses can evaluate whether the Power AC922 should become the heart of their AI infrastructure deployment, they need to keep in mind that the foundation of this environment should be a better data lake, one that is suited for AI services running on top of it. To achieve this better data lake, they need to consider five critical aspects:

  • An AI era data architecture
  • High-performance servers powering fast and enterprise-grade Hadoop and Spark
  • Scale-out storage that is integrated, compatible, and enterprise ready
  • Better and easier data management compared with current practices
  • Support for multiple data platforms — schemas and architectures

The first challenge

Bringing AI into your business

For today’s businesses the first challenge is to bring AI into the organization in a planned, streamlined fashion. A few years ago, haphazard experimentation with AI was the order of the day and generally accepted as necessary, albeit at a price. Today, that scenario is avoidable.

There are various solutions in the market to implement a coherent, efficient, and functioning AI road map for the enterprise. As such, AI is shifting from being a challenge to becoming an opportunity for the business.

There are still hurdles, of course, not in the least with attracting professional AI data scientists, but in terms of preparing the data and building the right infrastructure, no business needs to reinvent the wheel anymore.
