Business Intelligence Solutions on the IBM System x3850 X5
Business Intelligence (BI) is defined as the technology used to extract useful information from the vast amount of data that a business has been collecting over time. The information extracted can then be used by decision makers to guide their business to success. IBM builds, tests, and publishes reference configurations to provide clients with guidelines when sizing their BI configurations, and with the release of the new eX5 servers with more processors and memory than ever before in an x86 platform, this IBM Redguide shows how one can get the most out of one of these high-performance servers in a BI configuration. The eX5 servers allows to scale to new highs in performance, processes the cubes fast, and gets query results even faster.
