June 14, 2012 - Deploy! Issue 21
As core focus of this Newsletter, we highlight interesting topics and emerging trends related to the operational deployment of predictive analytics. We strive to bring you valuable insights in the effective, practical application of intelligent decision technology as part of every business process.
In this 21st issue of the Deploy! Newsletter, we focus on our exciting partnership with IBM. It allows for predictive solutions built in IBM SPSS Modeler and Statistics or any other PMML-compliant tool to be instantly deployed and executed on IBM SmartCloud Enterprise or in-database in the IBM Netezza appliance.|
Below, we list a number of resources and on-demand webcasts which explain how IBM data mining tools and compute infrastructure in conjunction with Zementis products simplify predictive analytics. From model building to deployment and execution, we have you covered!
Benefiting from Interoperability
PMML, the Predictive Model Markup Language, has become the de-facto standard to represent not only predictive models, but also data pre- and post-processing. In so doing, it allows for the interchange of models among different tools and environments, avoiding proprietary issues and incompatibilities.
Model Building: IBM SPSS
IBM SPSS Modeler and IBM SPSS Statistics are extremely powerful data analysis and model building environments. This power is backed-up by their support of PMML. In either tool, predictive models as well as data transformations can be easily exported into PMML. IBM SPSS Statistics, for example, allows for automatic data preparation which can be exported into PMML and subsequently merged into the final PMML file for the entire solution.

Model Execution: ADAPA on the IBM SmartCloud
Once exported in PMML, your IBM SPSS models can be readily deployed in the Zementis ADAPA Scoring Engine, where they can be put to work immediately. To minimize total cost of ownership, model execution in ADAPA is now available as a service through the IBM SmartCloud.

In-database Scoring: UPPI for IBM Netezza
Predictive solutions expressed in PMML can also be put to work inside the database with the Zementis Universal PMML Plug-in (UPPI) which is now available for IBM Netezza. Since UPPI transforms your complex predictive solutions into SQL functions, these can be readily used in any query and generate instant business decisions and insights where and when you need them.
