IBM Injects 'Data Science' AI Into Its Db2 Database
IBM doesnt release a whole lot of news detailing the ins and outs of its Db2 database division. Indeed, database vendors including Oracle, SAP, Microsoft and open source champions such as Apache Cassandra, MongoDB and Redis tend to take up more column spaces in the tech-business press. Each vendor is constantly trying to outstrip the other in terms of its databases supposed ability to scale upwards in size, handle deeper analytics complexity and work increasingly effectively (marcoms people like to say ‘seamlessly) on different types of data pipeline jobs, all in different cloud environments. What brought IBM forward to start talking about Db2 then? As is the case with the lion’s share of technology augmentations currently playing out at the end of this decade it’s all about adding Artificial Intelligence (AI) via the Machine Learning (ML) methods that fuel it.

Introduction Cable operators have expanded their enterprise service offerings to include multipoint managed networks for enterprises requiring interconnect networks, which may be metro, regional, or national in scope. In some cases, these enterprises not only want more visibility into their network infrastructure and service performance, but also want the ability to provision and control their services and bandwidth in real time. Due to the complexity of sharing services among several enterprises (and even residential services) on a single underlying network infrastructure, allowing enterprise customers this degree of control has been difficult to accomplish due to security, reliability, and management issues.

The ThinkOn team understands that data and operational supply chain sovereignty is a concern for all Canadians and is essential to the Canadian Federal Government and to the broader public and private sectors.

The new VMware Sovereign Cloud initiative recognizes VMware Cloud Providers that deliver cloud services on sovereign digital infrastructure and helps to connect organizations with highly sensitive data to these providers. ThinkOn has repeatedly demonstrated leadership in Canadian cloud security standards when it comes to data sovereignty, integrity, compliance, and mobility and we are delighted the organization is an initial member of the VMware Sovereign Cloud initiative.” Claude Reeves, Vice President and Country Manager, VMware Canada This announcement is good news for ThinkOn’s partners as well. ThinkOn’s go-to-market model continues to be white label, allowing partners to layer on their own managed services and features while retaining full account ownership and control. They can be confident knowing that the solution being delivered is designed from the ground up to exceed the requirements of public and private sector organizations and that complete supply chain control, aligned to sovereign interests, is enabled. “ThinkOn is extremely proud to be added to the prestigious VMware Sovereign Cloud initiative,” says Greg Chappell, Vice President of Sales, ThinkOn. “Our participation enables us to further highlight our strengths and the broad capabilities of our go-to-market channel partners. In the wake of the pandemic and the broad-based adoption of digital services by businesses and consumers, there is a critical need to provide accessible digital services across North America.
