IBM Launches London Analytics Solution Center
As part of a global multi-million pound investment intiative1, this newly-created centre will help IBM apply its advanced analytics expertise to the complex business challenges facing its UK-based clients.
According to IBM, the centre’s initial mission will be to focus on the UK financial services sector. It will help IBM’s financial sector clients to develop systems that provide improved visibility and tracking of risk positions across markets and asset classes, as well as to drive information management to support improved client satisfaction and cost efficiencies.
IBM has said that the London centre will have access to its comprehensive information management portfolio that includes technologies integrated following the acquisitions of Cognos, iLog and SPSS. It will also provide expertise to help organisations embed new sensor technology into their processes to gather detailed performance and management data on which to base analysis and decision-making.
Brendon Riley, chief executive at IBM UK and Ireland, said: “Today's business leaders need to move beyond intuition to insight, from gut feel to facts - it is now possible to see key patterns in vast amounts of data, to extract critical insights and move to a new level of intelligence. London was chosen due to its status as a global financial centre and world-class skills base.”
Is this a sensible move from IBM?
