Mention artificial intelligence (AI) to a person on the street, and you'll conjure up Hollywood visions ranging from the humanity-crushing Skynet of the Terminator series to the robot love interests in Her or Ex Machina. Perspectives on the tangible impact of AI similarly range from Elon Musk's declaration of AI as "the greatest risk we face as a civilization" to IBM Chief Science Officer Dr. Guruduth Banavar's belief that "we've never known technology that can have a greater benefit to all of society than artificial intelligence". The reality, especially in the short term, likely lies somewhere between these extremes.

Former Intel CEO Andy Grove once coined the phrase, “Technology happens.” As true as Grove’s pat aphorism has become, it’s not always good news. Twenty years ago, no one ever got fired for buying IBM. In the heyday of customer relationship management (CRM), companies bought first and asked questions later.
Nowadays, executives are being enlightened by the promise of big data technologies and the role data plays in the fact-based enterprise. Leaders in business and IT alike are waking up to the reality that – despite the hype around platforms and processing speeds – their companies have failed to established sustained processes and skills around data.

In most use cases involving flash storage deployments, the business environment changes, driving a need for higher-performance storage. However, the case of Epic Systems Corporation software is the opposite—the storage requirements haven’t changed recently, but the options for addressing them have.
Epic, a privately-held company founded in 1979 and based in Verona,Wisconsin, makes applications for medical groups, hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Epic software typically exhibits high frequency,random storage accesses with stringent latency requirements. IBM has been working with Epic to develop host-side and storage-side solutions to meet these requirements. Extensive testing has demonstrated that the combination of IBM® POWER8™ servers and IBM FlashSystem™ storage more than meets the performance levels Epic recommends for the backend storage supporting its software implementations—at a cost point multiple times lower than other storage alternatives.
Each Red Hat® JBoss® BRMS subscription provides a compelling combination of technology, including a business rules management system (BRMS), complex event processing (CEP), system management, and an application platform to run it all on. In comparison, IBM Operational Decision Manager provides BRMS and CEP capabilities.
Check out the differences between Red Hat JBoss BRMS 6 and IBM Operational Decision Manager 8.5.1. in this competitive review.
