Are you getting the insights you need from your data, or are you just getting more and more data?

At the HIMSS19 conference and exhibition (Feb 11-15 in Orlando, FL), we will introduce new capabilities of the IBM high-performance data and AI (HPDA) reference architecture for healthcare to help your organization make precision medicine a reality.

Our HPDA architecture, based on IBM Storage and IBM Software-defined Storage solutions, software-defined infrastructure and IBM POWER9 servers, supports some of the largest leading precision medicine initiatives around the globe. It also orchestrates Summit– the world’s most powerful supercomputer designed for data and AI. This architecture deployed for cloud-scale data management, multicloud workload orchestration and converged high-performance computing with deep learning can help a lab, department, hospital or a global healthcare institute become data-driven, designed to deliver new records for speed and scale, cost efficiencies, collaboration and ease of use.
