To understand how IBM Watson Discovery's services can help any enterprise gain business insights, it's necessary to comprehend its capabilities in detail.
By John Ghrist
One of the core assets of IBM's entire Watson program is the ability to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to sort through masses of data to come up quickly with insights it could take a human mind much longer to perceive. Previously, data analysis required structured data, such as a database, to provide the input from which insights might be gleaned, but Watson can also handle unstructured data (e.g., from videos, emails, and text documents). This ability means at least one of Watson's core products, called Discovery, has the advantage of being able to use as input data from just about anywhere.

Editor's note: This article introduces the white paper 3 Compelling Drivers for Implementing an HA Solution on an IBM i Cloud with MIMIX, which is free to download from the MC White Paper Center.
Until recently, high availability solutions for IBM Power Systems servers running IBM i were reserved mostly for larger enterprises with on-premise or dedicated hosting solutions. Given the emergence of the IBM i Cloud, high availability is now dramatically easier to use and a less expensive alternative for organizations of all sizes. Today, just about anyone running an IBM i environment can now afford the â€œluxuryâ€ of real-time, offsite data protection, as well as rapid and complete data recovery in the Cloud.
