First mainframe system with embedded analytics providing real time transaction insights 17X faster than compared competitive systems at a fraction of the cost

 

As mobile adoption grows, consumers are driving exponentially larger numbers of mobile transactions. Each of these mobile transactions triggers a cascade of events across computing systems. z13 is the first system able to process 2.5 billion transactions a day. Its transactions are persistent, protected and auditable from end-to-end, adding assurance as mobile transactions grow. The z13 features a fastest microprocessor, 2X faster than the most common server processors, 300 percent more memory, 100 percent more bandwidth and vector processing analytics to speed mobile transactions. As a result, the z13 transaction engine is capable of analyzing transactions in “real time” and will be able to help prevent fraud as it is occurring, allowing financial institutions to halt the transaction before the consumer is impacted. The z13 includes new support for Hadoop, enabling unstructured data to be analyzed in the system.
