Doug Henschen of InformationWeek reports, “DashDB and DataWorks, now available on IBM’s Bluemix cloud apps platform, are outgrowths of IBM’s February purchase of Cloudant. DashDB is a cloud-based data warehouse service, while DataWorks is a cloud-based data-integration service. IBM is being cagey about the technological roots of these new services, though it’s a safe bet that the columnar, SQL-based DashDB service is based on IBM Netezza, while the lightweight data-transformation and data-movement services of DataWorks are based on IBM CastIron.”

Henschen continues, “Initially, both services are designed to work in tandem with the Cloudant NoSQL database service, but ‘the roadmap calls for the services to eventually work with any source,’ said Derek Schoettle, CEO of IBM Cloudant, in a phone interview with InformationWeek.Customers running web or mobile applications on IBM Cloudant will be able to automatically replicate data from cloud-based NoSQL databases into DashDB for historical reporting and analysis. Using DataWorks, customers will be able to bring in transactional or enrichment data from on-premises or cloud-based sources for deeper correlation, analysis, and prediction.”
