IBM to Challenge Microsoft Office Suite’s Dominance through Cloud Computing Based Services

IBM plans to launch LotusLive Symphony through cloud computing platform to challenge the dominance of Microsoft’s Office Suite.

IBM Cloud ComputingGREATRESPONDER.COM – This was hinted out by the Big Blue Corporation in its ‘Lotusphere Conference’ on Monday September 1, 2014 that, it is going to seriously launch its own cloud computing based LotusLive Symphony suite of applications to challenge the control of desktop office software suite of Microsoft Corporation through power of cloud computing services. To substantiate the move, the company invited the CEO of RIM Corporation Jim Balsillie on the display of the suite in PlayBook flat devices.

It was further elaborated at the conference that, in previous display at Baltimore, the PlayBook users were demonstrated the effective use of the Lotus suite based on the cloud computing platform. This will be more effective as the enterprise users are moving toward the cloud computing services and mobile devices such as, Smartphone, laptops and tablets, as maintained in the statement.

This is also important to note that the research company IDC recently predicted that global social market platform will grow over 1.8 billion dollars. According to the Forrester analyst, Mr. Ted Schadler, “IBM and RIM cooperation for the two companies have a strategic significance in the use of cloud computing technology to help sales, marketing, customer service and product development team aspect, IBM ahead of Cisco, Google and Microsoft.”

While talking about the business impact and support of LotusLive Symphony, the company statement said, “The use of cloud computing technology enables LotusLive Symphony to work in many kinds of office software such as, editing documents, e-mails and presentations.

IBM Launches Watson Based Cloud Computing Platform for Researchers

The researchers in different domains such as, education, medical, financial, business and others would be able to analyze the big data with Watson Discovery Advisor cloud computing platform.

ibm cloud computingGREATRESPONDER.COM – This was announced by the IBM’s Watson business division –, which was established few months back – that it has launched a cloud computing based cognitive analysis platform to analyze and deduce the breakthroughs in the field of research and development. This announcement was made public on this weekend though an official statement of the company.

It was further informed in the announcement that, this new cloud computing based platform named as Watson Discovery Advisor is able to help the researcher from different fields who want to analyze the gigantic volumes of data to find out the result pattern for developing the research ideas. This platform is based on IBM Watson, the cognitive application system available through cloud computing platform of the company. This is important to note that IBM started a new business unit for launching Watson based cloud computing service.

While talking about the efficiency and improvements in the capabilities and capacities of the Watson platform, it was told that newly developed cloud computing based service is about 24 times faster, and more than 90% smaller in terms of its size; the overall percentile improvement of the platform stands as much as 2400% higher than its original capabilities.

The senior vice president of the IBM’s Watson Group Division, Mr. Mike Rohdin, in his statement said, “We’re entering an extraordinary age of data-driven discovery. Today’s announcement is a natural extension of Watson’s cognitive computing capability. We’re empowering researchers with a powerful tool which will help increase the impact of investments organizations make in R&D, leading to significant breakthroughs.”

It was further elaborated that Watson Discovery Advisor is very useful for industrial and scientific research to analyze large amounts of previously explored data and create new idea for the research at very fast pace. Many academicians and medical researchers have started deploying this highly features and next generation cognitive cloud computing platform in their respective researches.

In his statement, the principal investigator and professor of molecular and human genetics, biochemistry and molecular biology at Baylor College of Medicine, Mr. Olivier Lichtarge, said, “On average, a scientist might read between one and five research papers on a good day. To put this in perspective with p53, there are over 70,000 papers published on this protein. Even if I’m reading five papers a day, it could take me nearly 38 years to completely understand all of the research already available today on this protein. Watson has demonstrated the potential to accelerate the rate and the quality of breakthrough discoveries.”
