IBM and Palantir Technologies have entered into a new partnership consisting of IBM’s hybrid cloud data platform designed to deliver AI for business, with Palantir’s next-gen operations platform for building applications.
The product is expected to simplify how businesses build and deploy AI-infused applications with IBM Watson and help users access, analyze, and take action on the vast amounts of data that is scattered across hybrid cloud environments – without the need for deep technical skills.
The new product, Palantir for IBM Cloud Pak for Data, is planned for general availability in March of 2021.
Additionally, Palantir is adopting Red Hat OpenShift, allowing it to run anywhere in the hybrid cloud.
The new product will leverage Palantir Foundry and will integrate with IBM Cloud Pak for Data services, such as Watson, providing an information architecture that includes data and AI with built-in governance.
It is designed to provide an easy to use “no-code/low-code” environment for building applications that use AI to inform data-driven decision making and automate tasks and processes.
Built on Red Hat OpenShift, Palantir for IBM Cloud Pak for Data is intended to help businesses reduce data silos, integrate data sources across hybrid cloud environments, and govern data throughout the AI lifecycle.
The offering is planned for businesses in industries managing vast amounts of data where AI-infused applications can drive more informed business decisions and automate outcomes. This includes businesses in retail, financial services, manufacturing, healthcare and telecommunications.
