Zementis for IBM z Systems


An integrated predictive analytics deployment and scoring capability for organizations managing data and transactions with z Systems.

Mainframe computers have been with us for a very long time, but they are hardly a thing of the past. In fact, most organizations today manage critical, real-time business operations and maintain supporting data on mainframe computers.

The need to analyze data in the context of live business operations has made the role of mainframe computers even more critical, as these computing workhorses contain information that powers key operational processes. Analyzing that data is essential to driving business process efficiency, effectively managing risk, strengthening and maintaining competitive advantage and driving sustainable, profitable growth. Predictive analytics applies data science techniques to data, allowing organizations to uncover patterns and nuances that would have been difficult or impossible to discern without such techniques. Insights from predictive analytics on data allow organizations to develop informed, accurate perspectives on future outcomes and make insight-driven decisions with a high degree of confidence.

Zementis and IBM have teamed up to integrate enterprise-grade predictive analytics into the IBM z Systems z/OS data lifecycle ecosystem.
