Like Dell Technologies, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and other leading IT infrastructure providers, IBM markets mainframe computers, servers, data storage systems and other products that form the foundation for big data tasks either within a customer’s data center or in the cloud.
IBM also provides a comprehensive line of software at all levels of the big data system stack, including the DB2 database, IBM Business Analytics Enterprise (including the Cognos analytics tool, InfoSphere information server and Netezza performance server), and the IBM Cloud Pak for Data for developing a data fabric architecture.
In February IBM acquired StepZen, developer of a GraphQL server with a unique architecture for quickly developing GraphQL APIs. GraphQL is an emerging query language that helps organizations interact with data that is scattered across different data stores – such as data warehouses and data lakes – in on-premises and cloud systems.
