Why should I think about AI?

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning systems are moving beyond the hype cycle, as more and more organizations seek to shift their strategy to adopt AI. By 2025, 99% of new platforms will leverage some form of AI. Make sure your organization has the infrastructure needed for AI. 

Is your data center ready? Can it handle the heavy workloads that come with machine learning & big data analytics solutions? 

Why IBM Power for Artificial Intelligence

Prepare for the long run

According to studies, by 2025, 99% of new platforms will leverage some form of AI. The amount of data and computing power needed to handle them is growing exponentially. Sooner or later, your company will start working with applications that need huge computing capacities. Make sure you're ready for the future. 

Become truly data-driven

Future-oriented, customer-centric companies want to take decisions based on clear, proven insights coming from tons of data gathered by different systems: CRM systems, ERP, customer service, social media interactions, POS-interactions ... IBM Power Systems' high data throughput and AI-assisted model optimization will help you realize the full potential of AI and analytics. 

Get your infrastructure ready

Before talking about AI & deep learning applications, make sure you have the infrastructure you need to support them. You'll need infrastructure built for innovation, that keeps demanding workloads secure and delivers the fastest insights from your data. IBM Power Systems offers a perfect fit for this type of needs. 

Why IBM Power for AI?

Incredible performance & TCO

Legendary reliability & power

The No. 1 and No. 2 supercomputers in the world are built on IBM Power Systems technology. Every day, IT pros around the world are using IBM Power Systems to drive innovation. Ranked No. 1 in every major reliability category in several market studies, IBM Power Systems deliver reliable on-premises infrastructure 24/7.

Built with AI in mind

Whether you’re just beginning to get your data house in order, or starting to deploy your first deep learning applications and algorithms, IBM Power Systems are designed with your journey in mind. IBM Power Systems handle all of the data and processes it takes to build powerful AI applications — on a reliable infrastructure that you can depend on.

Watson Machine Learning Accelerator

An enterprise-ready deep learning ecosystem for your machine learning and AI applications. It makes deep learning and machine learning more accessible to your staff, and brings the benefits of AI into your business. It combines popular open source deep learning frameworks, efficient AI development tools, and accelerated IBM® Power Systems™ servers.

Scalable solutions

For smaller projects, data collection, analysis, model building, and deployment can be done on the same machine. For larger projects, IBM offers separate machines for the learning stage and the inferencing stage of your project. Training your system on a learning machine and bringing your model in production on an inference server, will bring you an even better return on investment. 

H2O driverless AI for IBM i

Specifically for IBM i customers, H2O driverless AI offers an easy entry into AI. This solution is specifically designed for customers with structured data (DB2). It removes many of the significant barriers that prevent organizations from adopting machine learning, performs the function of an expert data scientist and adds more power to both novice and expert teams.

Cloud solutions

We're able to help you with all cloud matters, offering the most flexible possibilities & scenarios to bring (part of) your IBM Power Systems environment to the cloud. All options are available: your own data center, our own private Cloud2be-environment and/or IBM's public cloud offering can be part of a hybrid setup, managed by our experts in collaboration with your own specialists. 

Application modernization

Application modernization is a key topic for many customers these days. Thanks to IBM's powerful and stable IBM i (previously System i or AS/400) platform, applications that are running for decades are no exception! Modernizing these existing applications is a low risk and low-cost operation compared to a complete application rewrite or migration to another software package.
