IT Infrastructure is crucial. Companies with leading IT infrastructure are 3X likely to outperform in revenue growth and 2.4X in net profit margin. Traditional approaches to offline analysis of siloed data can limit you. They can't keep up with the volume, variety and velocity of data coming in due to next-gen network rollouts, smart phones, social media and the deluge of unstructured data.

Emerging open source technologies like Hadoop can help cut the processing time especially in distributed environments. IBM can create an unstructured analytics solution delivering efficient performance with IBM Power Systems.
