Zizo goes Cognitive with Watson Analytics

Cognitive analytics is offering organisations the chance to leverage new ways of interaction between humans and machines. Cognitive systems can use natural language understanding and expert training to unveil new connections and insights within both structured and unstructured data – and get smarter during the process.


With the increased shift towards cognitive analytics, we want to extend the reach of what we are doing and our overall capabilities. The IBM Watson Analytics platform gives us the opportunity to move into this space, and utilise both the reputation of IBM but also the excitement that is building around the Watson Analytics product.


Watson is a cognitive technology that processes information more like a human than a computer - by understanding natural language, generating hypotheses based on evidence and learning as it goes.


IBM's clients are looking for cognitive industry solutions to stay competitive, and the Cloud is the platform of choice for developers and business professionals to re-imagine everything from banking and retail to telecommunications and healthcare.


Zizo's strategic cloud database management platform is changing the way people can use and interact with their data – all available at a price point never previously thought possible. We allow organisations to quickly and easily gain actionable insight into performance across the business; from operational and financial to commercial, digital or social.


Organisations can become data driven without the costly investment associated with traditional solutions.  There are no hardware, software, set-up costs or training needed. Moving to the Cloud also provides customers with more flexibility, reduces overheads on their IT infrastructure, and as we manage everything as a managed service; updates to the system can be carried out seamlessly.


Our Database is where our true technology capability lies. As the world’s only ‘pattern database’, we compress data by an average of 35:1, while offering granular level access to massive scale. As an example, the storage capacity of Zizo® is 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 (which is about 1018) separate patterns. One of our largest customers has over eight billion rows of data, is currently using in the region of 549,755,813,888 patterns; which is 0.000006% of the capacity of the Zizo® system.


In terms of data volume and capability of our platform, we offer customers a faster way of understanding their data and give them the ability to turn data into manageable chunks, which you can then put into Watson Analytics.


Becoming an IBM Watson Analytics Partner seems a natural fit for both businesses as the combination is enabling data to be placed in the hands of those who need it most – business people – so that anyone can ask any question, at any time, to allow for better, more informed decisions to be made.
