System Components

To support the entire analytical process, the SPSS solution for System z* consists of the following components:

IBM SPSS Modeler for Linux* on System z is a powerful, versatile data and text-analytics workbench that helps analysts build accurate predictive models quickly and intuitively, without programming. Using leading data-mining techniques, the workbench helps analysts model future customer behavior. It’s the most efficient way for organizations to use their data to model future customer behavior. This technique discovers patterns and trends in structured or unstructured data more easily, using a visual interface. In addition to predicting outcomes, models can explain the factors that influence them so users can take advantage of opportunities and mitigate risks. Text-analysis capabilities are integrated with SPSS Modeler too, so the critical insights locked in unstructured data can be used to increase the accuracy of predictions about customer behavior and strengthen the modeling capability.

IBM SPSS Statistics for Linux on System z is a leading statistical software that commercial, govern2ment and academic organizations use to solve business and research problems. IBM SPSS Statistics is one of the most accessible statistics tools in the market, enabling organizations to apply mathematical discipline to their decision-making.

IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services for Linux on System z provides a platform for managing and deploying analytical assets and allows for secure, browser-based access to results and integration to other components. It provides an infrastructure for managing the storage and automated refresh of predictive models along with other analytics processes.

In addition to predictive-analytics solutions, IBM Cognos* 8 Business Intelligence is also available for Linux on System z. You gain the real-time monitoring, reporting, analysis and dashboards it provides—plus all of the performance, efficiency and security of a System z environment. More information is online.
