Extending the reach of its analysis software and services, IBM plans to release 20 analytics packages customized to the needs of specific industries.
Available by the end of June, the packages will target businesses in retail, banking, telecommunications, insurance and other fields. Additional packages will be released in the future.
The packages augment off-the-shelf analytics software, from IBM or other parties, that organizations may already be running.
The software is intended to “speed up the process of applying complex analytics,” said Alistair Rennie, IBM general manager of analytics solutions. “They will deliver insight that business people can use very quickly.”
