IBM has announced upgrades to two of it key data applications, to better manage the challenges of big data.

Features include better integration of big data and real time analysis, including better integration with Hadoop-based systems; adaptive compression and multi-temperature data management that automatically compress data, and assign it to the most appropriate storage based on the frequency with which it use ie whether it is hot or cold; and Time Travel Query enables easier access to data at any point in time.

IBM says that over 100 clients and 200 business partners worked with personnel from its IBM Research and Software Development to develop the new software over the past four years.

"Today's growing data volumes make it tougher for clients to access the right data when they need it to stay competitive," said Arvind Krishna, general manager, IBM Information Management. "IBM has advanced database and data warehouse technology to the point where data management can be automated and insights shared more broadly than ever before, freeing up decision makers and IT staff to focus on business growth."
