IBM announced that it is transforming how organizations engage with business content and make it more usable and interactive across the enterprise to deliver better results and improve decision making. Through a new Big Data service available on the IBM Cloud marketplace, organizations can now easily secure, access and manage content from anywhere and on any device.
It’s estimated that 2.5 billion gigabytes of data are created every day, and 80 percent of that data is comprised of unstructured content such as contracts, claims forms, and permit applications. The explosion of the volume of content, and more importantly, new forms of it including Tweets and posts to social media, has increased the need to use any type of information from nearly any source.
Using this new service will allow knowledge workers to do their jobs more effectively and collaboratively by synchronizing and making the content they need available on any browser, desktop and mobile device they use everyday, and to apply it in the context of key business processes. IBM Navigator on Cloud, now available on the IBM Cloud marketplace and built on Softlayer’s Cloud platform, will help all users within and outside of the business gain value from this ever increasing deluge of content.
Today, clients and employees have come to expect the availability of critical and personal information at their fingertips, making security and privacy more important than ever before. IBM is bringing together the best of both worlds with new Enterprise Content Management (ECM) capabilities that work in regulated environments, but also provide easy to use mobile and web apps that deliver consumer-like interactions, just like any file sharing service available through an app store. Also, because this new technology is available on the IBM Cloud, it can be combined with any app or service.
“IBM continues to build on its leadership position by bringing new innovations to market to help clients like us find insights from emerging types of data and content,” said Richard Daley, Director of Records and Information Management, Tejon Ranch. “The new Cloud service from IBM will give IT staff, line-of-business managers, and executives the ability to share critical business content and help drive collaboration across the organization.”
