“With the addition of Databand, IBM offers the most complete set of surveillance capabilities for IT applications, data and machine learning,” said Daniel Hernandez, IBM general manager, data and artificial intelligence.
The open and extensible approach of Databand allows data scientists to easily integrate into their data infrastructure and provide visibility.
Databand capabilities can alert data scientists and engineers when the data they are using to fuel an analytics system is incomplete or missing.

Enterprises will also have full flexibility on how to run Databand, whether as a service (SaaS) or self-subscribing software, says IBM.

“Joining IBM will help us scale our software and significantly accelerate our ability to meet the growing needs of enterprise customers,” he added.
