IBM has pulled together software, services and hardware that it has developed and acquired to launch a new predictive analytics offering called the Smarter Analytics Signature Solutions.
IBM customers will now be able to integrate analytics capabilities into more of their business processes, the firm said, with the first wave of serviecs set to focus on firms that manage fraud, financial decisions and customer service.
"We are launching three new solutions today," Colin Shearer, global industry solutions leader, explained to V3.
"There is an anti-fraud and waste abuse solution, a next best action solution that will help to bring more value to customer relationships, and a chief finance officer (CFO) performance insight solution so people at the top of the organisation can see clearly all the financial decisions that are taking place within the organisation."
Shearer said the new solutions contain predictive analytics capabilities from the acquisitions of SPSS, Cognos, Unica and ILOG, as well as information management technology from IBM's Infosphere Streams.
IBM will also integrate the systems via its Global Services arm.
Shearer said IBM had been working on the integration of the products since the middle of last year.
"But not one of the three solutions is closed when it comes to technology. Any software can still be brought in, like Big Insights can be added by customers that want more big data analysis capabilities," he explained.
