IBM Watson Machine Learning for z/OS 2.3 and IBM Db2 AI for z/OS 1.4 enhancements boost functionality, performance, usability, and simplify deployment
IBM Extends Industry-Leading Enterprise AI
Announcing Watson Machine Learning for z/OS 2.3 and Db2 AI for z/OS 1.4
IBM Z continues to deliver AI innovation to help customers take the greatest advantage of their mainframe application infrastructure and data with enhancements to Watson Machine Learning for z/OS and Db2 AI for z/OS.
IBM Watson Machine Learning for z/OS 2.3
IBM Watson Machine Learning for z/OS (WMLz) 2.3 is the enterprise machine learning platform on IBM Z. It enables organizations to build, deploy, and operationalize machine learning models for in-transaction AI and real-time insights.
The latest release, WMLz 2.3, is designed to significantly improve online scoring service performance for various types of machine learning models, especially for deep learning models in Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX) format. It also includes enhancements for integration with IBM Cloud Pak for Data, installation, configuration simplification, and usability of WMLz base services, and a WMLz model Integrated Development Environment.
Also, look for the new IBM WMLz 2.3 Online Scoring Community Edition coming soon -- a lightweight version that provides a no-charge option for clients to try out the streamlined up-and-running WMLz model inferencing, in-transaction approach.
IBM Db2 AI for z/O 1.4
IBM is also announcing IBM Db2 AI for z/O 1.4 (Db2ZAI), a separately licensed product, that uses machine learning to improve the operational performance of Db2 for z/OS systems. It is built on the services that are provided by IBM WMLz to help optimize performance. Db2ZAI 1.4 includes the following enhancements:
- Enterprise readiness, including simplified migration and high-availability management
- System Assessment graph drill-down, which provides correlation from System Assessment exceptions to potential candidate SQL
- Enhanced Distributed Connection Control visualization for historical trend analysis and improved profile management
- SQL Optimization Value Dashboard, which provides a progress report that demonstrates the value provided by Db2 AI for z/OS SQL Optimization
